NORPA closes 2011 with a bang by presenting one of the world’s best virtuoso pianists, David Helfgott, in concert at Lismore City Hall on Saturday. David Helfgott was born in Melbourne and grew up in Perth. He was spotted as a young prodigy in his early teens by Ukraine-born violinist Isaac Stern who urged him to go overseas to pursue his career. Most of us know his story from the 1996 movie Shine starring Geoffrey Rush that propelled the humble pianist and his genius to worldwide fame, and from that has followed concerts around the globe. Lismore City Hall 7.30pm

One night only: December 3. Tickets A$67 C$54 U/18$30. Bookings www.norpa.org.au or call Box Office Mon–Fri 1300 066 772.
