What we're about

If you love playing or just listening to the piano then our group is for you!

Whatever your ability, experience or musical style you'll be welcome. The idea is to provide a monthly opportunity to play to a friendly group of like-minded people. We have the use of a number of Manchester venues, all with excellent (9ft) grand pianos. The events will be informal, the aim being to increase performance confidence, have fun and meet new people. If you'd like to try a duet, bring it along!

Free refreshments included. There's also no requirement to play or even be a pianist, being part of the audience is a great encouragement to the players. Our events are once a month, typically on the the second Saturday.

It’s £7 to attend whether playing or an audience member, this covers to cover the venue rental, insurance and refreshments.

Looking forward to meeting you and maybe hearing you play!

Hallé at St Michael's

All welcome to our December event and last of 2022 at Halle St Michael's. We'll be playing their lovely 9ft Yamaha CFX Concert Grand so another fantastic opportunity for us!

Everybody is welcome to play regardless of ability, experience or musical style. If you'd prefer just to listen that's fine too. It's a great event to attend if you're thinking of returning to the piano or starting for the first. It's also a brilliant opportunity to meet some new friends!

We'll get started at 2:30pm, but you're welcome to turn up anytime from 2pm. Tea/Coffee included!

NOTE FOR PLAYERS
As a guide, a maximum length 6mins for a single piece/movement works best, however let me know if you'd like play something longer and could well juggle the timings. Of course if your piece is shorter, no problem! I f you'd like to play you can let me know before anytime before the event or when you arrive on the day

See you soon for another lovely afternoon of piano!
