Chris Bebbington

Biography

"Chris Bebbington is a pianist based in Exmouth. He has played extensively in Europe, toured the Middle East and closer to home he has played in most of the biggest concert halls in the UK including the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester, the Macmillan Theatre in Bridgwater, the Wedgewood Rooms on the Albert Road and the Royal Albert Hall in London. His recital programmes encompass a range of styles because of his inability to focus. So, expect some classical music, some jazz and some of his own compositions.

When Chris isn’t playing the piano he spends time with his family undermining the excellent example that his other half, Vicky, sets for their daughter, Myla."

Programme

• 3rd Movement from Vivaldi's Summer - arr. C Bebbington
• A Tribute to Chick Corea - arr. C Bebbington
• Águas de Março - Jobim
• Fantaisie Impromptu - Chopin
• Selection from 'Hiawatha' - C Bebbington
