A WORLD piano competition winner will be the first in the 2008 line-up for the concert club.

Ashley Wass will perform for the WG Concert Club schedule on January 19 at Campus West in the town.

He is the only British pianist to win the first prize at the World Piano Competition in 1977 and the second to reach the final of the Leeds Piano Competition.

He has given recitals at most of the UK's prestigious venues, including the Wigmore Hall, Royal Festival Hall and the Bridgewater Hall, as well as festivals across the UK.

At this concert he will play six pieces from Brahms' Opus 118, Alwyn's Twelve Preludes and Liszt's Annees de Pelerinage, Book 2 (Italy).

It starts at 7.45pm.

Tickets are £12 or £2 for under 16s.
