Concert Series: Nicholas McCarthy – Piano

Civic Centre

One of Britain’s most inspiring pianists, Nicholas McCarthy was born in 1989 without his right hand, and through sheer talent and determination rose above the many obstacles and active discouragement in order to pursue his love of the piano. Nicholas graduated from the Royal College of Music in July 2012 and drew press headlines around the world, being the only one-handed pianist to graduate from the RCM in its 130-year history.

In March 2018 he was awarded honorary membership by its President, HRH King Charles. Since then, Nicholas has performed extensively around the world in both recital tours and with major orchestras in some of the most prestigious concert halls across the world.
