Internationally renowned classical pianist and Oscar-nominated recording artist Martin Jones will perform a special concert Sunday afternoon at First Presbyterian Church of Arlington Heights.

Jones will perform Jonathan Newmark's "Piano Sonata IV Fugue," William Neil's "Preludes 1-4," and a special piece from composer Bruce Mahin. The concert is from 4 to 5:30 p.m. in the church's sanctuary, 302 N. Dunton Ave.


"Martin Jones is one of Britain's most highly regarded solo pianists and we are extremely excited to welcome him," Pastor Alex Lang said in a news release. "This concert is a wonderful opportunity to build relationships and enjoy the fellowship and community First Presbyterian Church provides, particularly as we head into the holiday season."

Jones gained international attention in 1968 when he received the Dame Myra Hess Award. The same year he made his London debut at the Queen Elizabeth Hall and his New York debut at Carnegie Hall.
