Born and raised in Coleambally, violinist Hayden Wiseman is returning home in the hopes of giving back to the community which enabled him to thrive musically.
Hearing the call of the violin at an early age, being in a remote country town posed one problem: no violin teacher. So began his pursuit of piano.
He considered it "a miracle" when violin teacher Paul Legget finally came to town when he was 12, he thanked his parents for letting him jump on the opportunity of a lifetime.
Studying hard, his dream of recording a CD came to fruition with 'Music to Soothe the Soul' in 2009, brought into reality through the help of the generous Griffith and Coleambally community.
I am excited to see these people again, and especially people who played a part in helping me at the start and were so supportive, it's something I want to share with them, give back, and catch up.Hayden Wiseman
"When I was busking in the beginning, everyone really got behind me and enabled me to produce that CD," he said.
"I am excited to see these people again, and especially people who played a part in helping me at the start and were so supportive, it's something I want to share with them, give back, and catch up."
As Griffith will be he 27-year-old's final stop in his tour of Australia, the performance holds that extra special touch.
"I'll be performing in front of the people who helped me get to where I am today - it's not nerve-wracking, but a very special feeling."
Performing a repertoire of sacred music, he says the deeper meaning of the music calls to him in a way that other classical music doesn't.
"It does more for me personally, it's that depth in the music that really resonates with me."
During the course of his album promotions, of which he now has three, Hayden has performed over 150 concerts throughout Australia and New Zealand.
With the release of his third CD in January, he now plans to focus on performing on performing sacred and classical music full time to "inspire and bring joy" to thousands around the world.
Joining Hayden in concert will be young pianist and accompanist Emily Thompson, who is studying Music at the Sydney Conservatorium, along with her brother Scott on French Horn and uncle, Stephen Aveling-Rowe on Cello.
Music will have classical show pieces for piano and violin like Vivaldi, Brahms along with his specialty of traditional and contemporary worship songs in classical/folk style.
He will be performing at Griffith Regional Theatre on September 1.
