Highgate pianist raises £1,800 for Lauderdale House and Waterlow Park
A rising piano star gave a concert performance this week to support two local landmarks.
Pietro Gatto, 28, of Highgate, drew an audience of 120 to Highgate School’s Dyne House in Southwood Lane on Tuesday to raise funds for historic Lauderdale House and the Friends of Waterlow Park.
Mr Gatto, who studies at the Royal College of Music, delighted the audience with pieces by Beethoven, Bach, and Schumann.
The concert raised about £1,800 for the two organisations.
Katherine Ives, director of Lauderdale House, said: “Everyone was rapt. He’s a fabulous pianist and a young talent.
