WORLD-renowned pianist Kimball Gallagher will be performing in several locations in Fiji next month.

A native of Boston in the US, Gallagher is expected to visit Fiji from February 11 - 17th.

Pacific Coast Events and Promotions producer Darlene Underwood confirmed Gallagher would perform at two private residences in Pacific Harbour and Suva.

"I am in the process of liasing with our three universities and possibly a public performance," Ms Underwood said.

Ms Underwood says people will enjoy Gallagher's music as it was a different genre from what people in Fiji were used to.

"Stylistically, Kimball's performance genre is more classical. However, it would be of great interest and a sharing of knowledge of this art form, rarely seen in Fiji.

"Music is seen as the universal language and education through music is important on all levels of society."

According to his website, Gallagher studied at the accomplished arts school, The Juilliard School, and enjoys composing, writing and exploring various musical genres.

He has risen to prominence as one of the most dynamic and multifaceted artists on the musical stage today. Gallagher has also toured third-world and war-torn nations to aid charities around the globe.
