“Why does the world need a Piano Day? For many reasons. But mostly, because it doesn’t hurt to celebrate the piano and everything around it: performers, composers, piano builders, tuners, movers and most important, the listener.” – Nils Frahm
Piano Day, an annual worldwide event founded by a group of likeminded people, takes place on the 88th day of the year – in 2021 it’s the 29th March – because of the number of keys on the instrument being celebrated. The aim of the day is to create a platform for piano related projects in order to promote the development of musical dimensions and to continue sharing the centuries-old joy of playing piano. Piano Day welcomes all kinds of piano lovers — young and old, amateur and professional, of any musical direction – to join in. It is intended to be the most joyful of all holidays!”
This concert will be live-streamed direct from the studio at JMC Academy in Brisbane in addition to the live studio audience, with the performers playing the wonderful Kawai GL-40 grand piano.
Featuring the award winning Head of Music Sean Foran, acclaimed Brisbane pianists Peta Wilson and George Lignos, and JMC graduates Kailan O'Dell and Rachel Morais.
