Hosted by Forsyth
Saturday 9 March 2019
2.30pm – 4.30pm
The Meetup group Let's Play the Piano! returns to Forsyth for the next in their popular series of events, which provide invaluable opportunities for adult amateur pianists to perform and for music-lovers to hear a wide variety of music in a friendly, supportive environment – and on one of our fantastic Schimmel grand pianos!
This session is open to players of all abilities, levels of experience and musical styles, as well as to those who would like just to listen.
At the last session in January (above), the programme was as wide-ranging as ever: the second
movement of the Grieg piano concerto, performed on two beautiful 9-foot Schimmel Konzert grand
pianos, a piano duet by Sidney Smith, solo works by Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, Liszt, Brahms,
Elgar, Scriabin and Rachmaninov, plus arrangements of songs by Gershwin, Errol Garner and Queen
and music from The Godfather.
You're welcome to turn up anytime from 2pm: there will be free refreshments both before the session and during the interval. In addition, all attendees will be eligible on the day for a 10% discount on all sheet music for piano.
Attendance for both players and audience members is £5, which will help cover the group's organisational costs along with its further development for the benefit of piano lovers in Manchester.
