Children’s Concert
with Harry the Piano

– Posted in: Hebden Bridge Piano Festival 2020

Friday 24th April 5pm

Headlining on Saturday afternoon, Harry the Piano has also agreed to present our Children’s Concert this year.

Renowned improviser Harry the Piano will be presenting a special concert specifically aimed at younger audience members and families.

Material will include his legendary variations on the Harry Potter theme (two million hits on youtube), a medley of TV themes and cartoons and requests from the audience to play tunes at their request in any chosen style.

Harry has been running workshops teaching students of all ages to improvise for twenty years now and in over fifty different schools from Devon to North Scotland. He will be talking about what that entails and telling tales such as being asked to write music for adverts, radio shows, BBC’s ‘Children in Need’ and memorably for a West End magic show where the performer wanted all the music for the entire evening to be variations on the children’s tune ‘The Wheels on the Bus’ including styles from a nursery version to a full Hollywood orchestra!

Musical hilarity for all ages guaranteed.
