Folks won’t want to miss Jack Gibbons, one of England’s most exciting pianists, at 7pm on Tuesday, Oct. 27 at the Carteret County Museum of History (formerly The History Place), Morehead City. The program is sponsored by the Carteret Arts Forum, which focuses on brining enriching cultural experiences to Carteret County.
Gibbons has established a remarkable reputation as one of the finest pianists of his generation and his concerts are regularly received with standing ovations at New York’s Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, as well as London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall, where he has appeared annually for more than 16 years. In 2002, he won special praise for having fought his way back from a near-fatal car accident to perform once again to a capacity crowd at both Carnegie Hall and Queen Elizabeth Hall. The British press described his achievement as “miraculous” and “gutsy” and the BBC again hailed him as “THE Gershwin pianist of our time.”
