We finally have a new date and venue! Hooray
Sunday 12th September 2010. Time 12pm-3.30pm at St. Christophers School in Letchworth
The idea of this event is mainly for adults who are nervous or haven't really had the opportunity to play in front of other people before, plus also to hear some more experienced players and teachers. No spectators just players please.
The event is to be very informal. I am hoping to have a half hour slot for people who are particularly nervous or have either not performed in front of others before, to have a go, whilst everyone is eating and and no-one is really paying attention. Because this practice time is very short it will be allocated for the more nervous only. You are welcome to play any piece in any state of progression, whether it is polished or in progress. It is not about how well you perform your piece but just having the courage to get up and do it!
We do not need to know what you are playing before hand but on the day just before you play your piece in the performance slot please say what your piece is!

Please contact me for a campus map.
12 – 12.30pm Arrive, eat and have refreshments in first half hour whilst people can have a go on the piano.
12.30 – 3.30pm I have allocated a total of 10 minutes per person for their ‘performance time’. This can be taken in one go or broken up. I have also allowed 20mins time wastage.
We have a few people coming from quite a distance so thought it a good idea to supply a small buffet, rather than eat out after. This has to be vegetarian due to the School’s policy. Tea and coffee will be provided.
Costs are as follows:
Food, tea and coffee £137 approx
Venue hire £35
Total £172 approx
I am going to propose asking for £12 each payable by cheque or bank transfer because we are now supplying food (which will cover unexpected costs or non payers.) On the day if everyone turns up I will refund the excess.
In the first instance could you please confirm that you still wish to attend. Once I have received your payment, your place will be secure.
Payment deadline to be 12th August.
Please PM me for payment details.
If anyone has any severe allergies please let me know so we can inform the caterers.
