Next Local & Live concert will showcase Stourbridge pianists
9:00am Saturday 7th September 2013 in News
TALENTED pianists will be gathering in Stourbridge later this month for a concert of popular piano music.
The Local & Live event, being held at St James’s Church, Bridgnorth Road, Wollaston, on Saturday September 21, will see Stourbridge musician Tony Bridgewater joining forces with Steven Swindells to play his own composition Midland Dances.
Wordsley-born Janine Smith will perform the world premiere of a piece commissioned by Local & Live from Stourbridge based composer Marcus Tristan.
Well-known pianists Richard Hall, George Rowley, Matthew Davies, Mike Smith and Michael Jones will also be performing in the concert which will include compositions by Bach, Chopin, Liszt, Poulenc, Rachmaninov and Wagner.
Graham Smith, chairman of Local & Live - a not-for-profit group of music enthusiasts, said: “The concert is designed to showcase the talents of local musicians and composers.
“We hope the event will appeal to the lovers of good music, and perhaps inspire more local people to consider learning to play the piano or to compose their own music.”
The concert starts at 7.30pm.
Tickets, priced £8 (free for under 18s), are available on the door.
