Keys to health

Simon Tedeschi is young, talented, pale and in need of some good old Lismore sunshine. Which hell get when this brilliant pianist performs here soon.

When I was nine years old I made bows and arrows from saplings and scrap wood and used to shoot short cowboys with their Smith & Wessons made from clothes pegs. Pretty damn creative, dont ya reckon?

When Simon Tedeschi was nine, he played a Mozart Piano Concerto at the Sydney Opera House. He probably doesnt know how to make arrows from fence palings but this remarkable young musician knows how to make passionate fine music. He has done so all over this wide, toad-infested land and around the world, collecting a swag of prizes and scholarships on the way. Not bad for an old fella of 25...

Simon Tedeschi In Concert is organised by Musica Viva Lismore and the Mental Health Support Group. The concert will be held at Lismore City Hall at the end of Mental Health Week on Saturday, October 14, from 7.30pm.

The program will include a classical best of Chromatic Fantasy and Fugue by Bach, Sonata op10/1 by Beethoven, Sonata 5 by Prokofiev, Impromptu op90/4 by Schubert, Blue Rondo Ala Turk by Brubeck and Gershwins Rhapsody in Blue. Yum.

Proceeds from the gig will go to local mental health support services.

Tickets (which include a complimentary glass of bubbly) are $38/34/20 (with discounts for groups). Theyre available from the ABC Centre in Ballina, Dymocks in Lismore, and Alstonville Bookworm.

Proceeds from the concert will go towards mental health welfare work in the region.
