Holly Cullen-Davies presents ‘Why everyone should learn the piano’

Sunday 14th July, 12 noon

We love the piano so much at Ribble Valley International Piano Week that we wanted to find a way to give young people a chance to hear just what it can do in a concert designed for them.

Holly Cullen-Davies from the The Kids’ Concert Company will play a selection of short works for the piano, from classical music to jazz, by some of the most famous composers who ever lived. From Nina Simone to Mozart, Scott Joplin to Bach, it’s a celebration of all things PIANO for the whole family.

There will be a quiz and numerous chances to join in with singing, improvising at the piano, drawing and even dancing!

Our age recommendation for this concert is 6+

Tickets: £13 adults, children go FREE

Kids’ Concert Company founder Holly Cullen-Davies is well known for her work as pianist, music leader, presenter and entrepreneur. Her concerts are always lively, colourful, interactive and accessible to everyone. Holly believes that exposing children to the best music ever written is the most important way to inspire them. This music can be classical, jazz, folk, pop or film music but if children haven’t heard it they won’t know what they could be aiming for. What better start to the summer holidays could there be than this amazing introduction to the wonderful world of piano music, which will stay with the lucky children who experience it for the rest of their lives.
