&Piano Breaking the Silence - Sept 2020 livestreams announced

&Piano Breaking the Silence - Sept 2020 livestreams announced

&Piano are delighted to be able to share a little bit of good news in these currently very difficult times for the performing arts...we may not be going ahead with our usual September festival, but we are, however, really excited to be able to announce that we'll be offering TWO live-streamed performances at 7:30pm, one on Friday 18th September & another on Saturday 26th September, marking what would have been our instrumental and vocal evenings.

We'll be broadcasting LIVE from our usual venue of The Civic in Slaithwaite, and have invited the performers who were due to be performing back in May, at what would have been our first 'Chilled Classical' gig at the Magic Rock Brewing Tap House.

Both nights will feature a 30-minute programme of music put together by the performers, reflecting on the events of 2020, including the COVID-19 pandemic, the lockdown, the complete silencing of live-music performance, as well as the Black Lives Matter movement that also swept the world.

These will be completely free of charge to watch, on either our Facebook or Youtube channels, but we'll be encouraging those who do join us to make a 'pay as you feel' donation in lieu of a ticket.

Due to the uncertainty and lack of established best practice at the moment to ensure the safety of audience and performers, we now plan to host our main festival in April 2021 - a move that we had been planning to make in 2022, to be able to fit in better with the academic calendar and develop our work with schools, colleges & universities - we hope by that time, precedence will be in place to be able to safely welcome live audiences again, (and we really can't wait for that day...!)

Please tune in on Friday 18th and Saturday 26th September at 7:30pm to join us for what could possibly be the first (or at least one of the first) live-music concert performances in Huddersfield since March!
