Possessor of possibly the most unlikely-sounding (and yet apparently real) name we’ve heard in a while, Ovidio De Ferrari is a Chilean-born pianist, singer and conductor who has spent the past few decades playing and teaching all over the world. And when we say decades, we’re not kidding – Ovidio started composing music at the age of five, before he could even read properly, and started giving concerts at the age of 10. At 15, he graduated from high school, coming top out of 390 candidates.
So he’s a sharp tack, is Ovidio, and one with a great deal of talent. He’ll be showing off his skills this weekend at ‘A Man and His Music’, an intimate evening concert that he’ll be hosting in the Green Community.
He’s keeping tight-lipped about what exactly he’ll be playing, but you can expect a number of different musical styles from around the world.
