It’s a big week of piano-related things in Leeds. Ahead of our brudenellpianosessions pianodayofficial show on Friday 29th March Nath_brudenell, I’ll be speaking on the panel & performing at this really interesting event universityofleeds School of Music, bringing together a whole set of much cleverer people than me to talk about the piano 🎹 Please do come along if you’re free. More info below:
Few instruments capture our imagination quite like the piano.
It conjures up rich imagery: from singalongs with friends or family, to musicians as diverse as Nina Simone, Lang Lang and Freddie Mercury.
And with the 88 keys at the heart of big pop culture moments like John Lewis’ Christmas ad - not to mention a certain steamy duet at the Oscars - its allure shows no signs of fading anytime soon.
Ahead of Piano Day 2019 (marked by a special Brudenell Piano Session), we’re bringing together local musicians and experts to lift the lid on what makes this most versatile of instruments so special to us.
Join us at the University of Leeds School of Music for a relaxed evening of conversation - and, of course, live music - with guests including: - Simeon Walker - international touring pianist and composer, founder and host of the Brudenell Piano Sessions
- Kate Cameron - PhD researcher in music psychology
- Rowan Lewis - local creative and self-taught classical pianist
Simeon and Rowan will be performing on the night, along with University of Leeds music students. The event is free to attend and open to all. Donations for Leeds MAP are welcomed on the night.
The bar opens at 6:30pm, with the event starting at 7pm and ending around 8:15pm.
