Derry, Northern Ireland
Derry (/ˈdɛri/),[2] officially Londonderry (/ˈlʌndənˌdɛri/),[3] is the second-largest city in Northern Ireland[4][5] and the fourth-largest city on the island of Ireland.[6] The name Derry is an anglicisation of the Old Irish name Daire (modern Irish: Doire) meaning "oak grove".[7][8] In 1613, the city was granted a Royal Charter by King James I and gained the "London" prefix to reflect the funding of its construction by the London guilds. While the city is more usually known colloquially as Derry,[9][10] Londonderry is also commonly used and remains the legal name. The old walled city lies on the west bank of the River Foyle, which is spanned by two road bridges and one footbridge. The city now covers both banks (Cityside on the west and Waterside on the east)

Arthur Greene
Arthur Greene is an American pianist and educator. He won Gold Medals at both the 1978 Gina Bachauer International Piano Competition and the William Kapell International Piano Competition.[1] The Washington Post wrote "For 99 out of every 100 contestants in a competition, playing the Brahms B-flat would be a mistake. It is an enormous challenge, and is really meant to be played only by the masters. But Arthur Greene assumed the risk and won - in more ways than one. It was a virtuoso reading. But that was not what mattered most about it. For above all one was conscious throughout that here was a profound musician - one of intense concentration and seriousness of purpose."[2] He has performed with the Czech National Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra, National Symphony of Ukraine, and the San Francisco, Utah, and Tokyo Symphonies.
