For centuries, people have found joy in playing, and listening to, the piano. Nils Frahm thought this beloved instrument should be honoured, and launched Piano Day* in 2015, which is being celebrated today, 29 March across the world. Daylight Music will be joining in the worldwide celebrations with a special concert of piano delights—including performances from Sophie Hutchings, Arthur Lea + Xenia Pestova + Lorenzo Masotto. From John Cage interpreted on toy piano, to retro rhythm n blues, to post classical reflection and improvisations from Italy and Australia on a baby grand.
[*please note the event is on the nearest Saturday to Piano Day]
About Daylight Music
Daylight Music Returns for a six week summer run 10 June – 15 July
Daylight Music has a magical atmosphere that’s quite unlike any other gig. Everyone is invited—from babies through to great-grandparents—and the venue is also accessible for wheelchair users and buggies. Creative music is inspiring, so there’s even a drawing area for everyone to enjoy making their own masterpiece.
Even the intervals sound amazing at Daylight Music; you could be treated from anything from enveloping soundscapes to the Ski Sunday theme tune played on the historic Henry Willis organ.
It all takes place in the award-winning Union Chapel; as well as being famed for its glorious Gothic architecture, it’s frequently voted one of London’s best music venues. You can also enjoy a cup of coffee, a slice of quiche and a slab of homemade cake from the Margins Project café, which supports London’s homeless people.
Daylight Music combines amazing music, the friendliest atmosphere and delicious food in one of London’s greatest music venues. It’s the finest way to spend a lazy Saturday afternoon.
Daylight Music takes place at the Union Chapel, Islington, from Midday, on most Saturdays from February 11th to April 1st.
