Piano Roadshow

Published on 5 April, 2016

On Wednesday 6 April, the new artistic director of the Wales International Piano Festival, pianist Iwan Llewelyn-Jones will take to the road for a series of impromptu performances in North West Wales.  Armed with a brilliant red piano supplied by Pianos Cymru and with the help of Ian Jones, Iwan will visit four venues in Bangor, Menai Bridge and Caernarfon to play a wide selection of popular music for passers-by, from Chopin to Stevie Wonder. 

Iwan said, “It’s going to be fun going on the road with this bright red piano – you’ll not be able to miss us!  I hope that people enjoy hearing lovely piano music played live in these rather unexpected places.  I’ll be taking requests, so people can come along and I’ll play something just for them. They can even have a sing along if they like, or join me in a duet!” 

The aim of the Roadshow is to raise awareness of the Wales International Piano Festival 2016, which is organised by the William Mathias Music Centre in Galeri, Caernarfon and which takes place from 29 April – 2 May, 2016. This four-day event features concerts, a competition with competitors from all over the world, and performances in informal settings.
