WORLD renowned pianist Kimball Gallagher hopes to return to Fiji next year following his successful visit this week.

Gallagher, who has toured third world and war-torn nations to aid charities around the globe, held two private performances in Fiji and a recital at a resort in Pacific Harbour.

"Kimball also gave a lecture/recital at the Fiji National University in Suva to music students of the school," Pacific Coast Events and Promotions producer Darlene Underwood said.

"His last performance was at the US ambassador's residence in Suva."

She said the response the humanitarian received was positive.

"The recitals were received very well. Kimball delivered a rich experience for those who enjoy classical music.

"He thoroughly enjoyed his short stay here. He has made some very beneficial connections for his return trip in 2015."
