Six grand pianos, six pianists, six screens and two toy pianos will fill the St David’s Hall stage for this hour-long piano spectacular for primary schools. Direct from New York City, the six pianists of Grand Band will perform music from the mesmerising Six Pianos by the ever popular composer Steve Reich to the zany exuberant modern-day music by young American, Ben Wallace, whose piece A Road you Can Go remixes tunes from Nintendo’s Mario Kart Franchise.

Presented by composer, actress and animateur, Helen Woods, this fun and educational concert will be a visual and aural treat for all in attendance.
