SOME of Bathurst’s most talented pianists are in for a real treat on Tuesday when they get the chance to learn from one of the best.
Andrey Gugnin, winner of the 2016 Sydney International Piano Competition, will be in town for a performance at Bathurst Memorial Entertainment Centre on Tuesday night that is sure to wow the crowd.
But he will also run a public Piano Masterclass on Tuesday morning, working with local piano students. Observers are also welcome.
For his evening performance there will be a fixed camera on the keyboard so every seat in the theatre will be provided with an excellent view of Andrey’s technique.
The whole day will be a rare insight into how a master craftsman goes about his art.
Tickets are still available for the evening show.
Phone 6333 6161 for bookings. Show starts 7.30pm.
Snow joke: Region misses out again
WEATHER watchers were left a little dispirited on Monday as hopes of decent snowfall across the region were dashed once again.
Parade did hear reports of very light dustings of snow on the high country around Shooters Hill and Black Springs but nothing in the more heavily populated areas around Oberon by the time we went to press.
There were still some predicting overnight falls that might put a bit of snow on the ground on Tuesday morning but only time will tell.
We might not have got the snow, though, but Bathurst certainly got the full brunt of winter on Monday.
The icy wind was one of the coldest we’ve experienced so far this year.
Another legend on the Mountain
MOUNT Panorama is usually associated with Aussie legends like Brock, Perkins, Johnson and Lowndes, but it will be a legend from a different field who takes centre stage in November.
Parade was excited to hear rock legend Bernard Fanning had been confirmed as the headline act for this year’s Inland Sea of Sound, supported by a great lineup of Australian and local talents.
His appearance will attract a big crowd at the festival that just seems to get bigger every year.
