PIETERMARITZBURG-BORN cellist Nigel Fish performs a “welcome home” concert at the Tatham Art Gallery at 1.10 pm tomorrow.

The concert, titled A Song And Dance, is part of the Friends of Tatham Art Gallery’s free lunchtime concert series at the gallery in Chief Albert Luthuli Street (Commercial Road).

Fish, who comes from a family which has always been closely associated with music in the city, studied at the University of Cape Town, in Amsterdam and in Aachen, Germany. He was an original member of the then Natal Philharmonic Orchestra and was appointed as principal cellist in 1986, a position he held until 1996. After relocating to Germany he played in the Symphonie Orchester Aachen and various other ensembles in Germany.

Fish recently returned to Pietermaritzburg where he intends to further his involvement as cellist, educator and co-ordinator of various musical activities in the province.

For his performance at the Tatham he plays a wide-ranging selection of cello music, including songs and dances by Eccles, Rachmaninoff, Mendelssohn and others.

Christopher Duigan joins him at the piano.
