ARBROATH musician Mark Spalding will return to Dundee’s Wighton Centre tomorrow (Saturday).

The morning Cappuccino Concert, hosted by the Friends of Wighton, starts at 10.30 a.m. with coffee and newspapers, and the music begins at 11 a.m. Admission is £5.

Mark will perform a solo recital on harpsichord and piano, which will include historical music by William Kinloch, as well as more contemporary compositions for piano by Ronald Stevenson and Morris Pert.

The Wighton Centre, upstairs in the city’s Wellgate Library, is a beautiful performance and study space, built to house the Wighton Collection: an internationally important collection of over 700 old books of Scottish music.

The collection of rare antique volumes was assembled by Dundee merchant Andrew Wighton, and donated by him to the city after he died in 1866. The centre is also home to a very fine French two-manual harpsichord, which will be used for tomorrow’s recital.
