The pianist, who will perform with his left hand only after being born without his right hand, will go live on 24 April at 7pm BST
Award winning concert pianist and motivational speaker, Nicholas McCarthy, was born without his right hand and is currently the world's only one-handed concert pianist focusing on the brave and dynamic world of left hand alone repertoire.
His international performances, speeches and media appearances continue to inspire millions around the world.
On Friday he will live-stream the first ever left hand alone concert as part of the #YamahaLiveFromHome series.
This series is a digital concert initiative that brings people together from around the world, to experience music from one home to another. Artists across different countries will perform live from their homes, record tutorials and share various other content through the Yamaha social channels and artist platforms.
Nicholas will be live streaming from his Facebook and Instagram pages. Follow him below to be notified about his live performance as it begins.
Very excited to have been asked by @yamahapianosofficial @yamahamusiceurope to perform in their European wide concert series #YamahaLiveFromHome. I’ll be live-streaming via my Facebook Page and Instagram (@nicholasmccarthyofficial) this Friday 24th April at 7pm UK time (8pm CEST). So after another week of lockdown, join me, grab a drink, sit back & enjoy the music. See you Friday. 🎹🎶 #YamahaLiveFromHome _______________________________________ #liveconcert #streamedconcert #livestream #classicalconcert #classicalpiano #pianistsofinstagram #instapiano #instagramlive #instagramlivestream #disability #classicalmusiclive #pianoplayer #pianoman #pianomusic #piano🎹 #piano🎹🎶
