Once again next February, Hastings pianists of all ages and skill levels will be given the chance to play music of their choice on a beautiful concert-standard grand piano in the middle of Priory Meadow Shopping Centre.
Last February more than 50 talented pianists seized the opportunity to show off their skills. The youngest was a little girl of just three, the oldest was well into his seventies. “This winter we’re going to go all out to attract even more people,” said co-organiser Lesley Turnbull.
As usual, the audience seemed to relish all the different kinds of music being played, from pop songs to show tunes to a Haydn sonata.
The grand piano, which will be generously provided by Sussex Pianos, will be installed at Priory Meadow from Friday 17th until Sunday 19th February.
Adults can play for up to 20 minutes but children can play for as short a time as they wish. Anyone who wishes to bring a friend along to play a duet is encouraged to do so. Music teachers are also welcome to bring a group of pupils.
The piano will be available from 9am to 5.30pm on Friday and Saturday and 10am till 4pm on Sunday.Pianists can apply for a pre-booked slot by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or texting 07788 723003.
