Family Friendly Concert - World famous pianist Allan Schiller plays pieces by Chopin in the second in a series of short (45 minutes) classical piano concerts on your doorstep. Perfect for children, families, people learning the piano and anyone who loves hearing live worldclass music. 4pm on Saturday 25th January at Totterdown Baptist Church. £5 adults, £1 children. Refreshments afterwards. The first concert in the series (Mozart) was a real treat and ended with all the children chasing a ‘gorilla’ round and round the church! We don’t know if he’ll make an appearance at this one but we DO know that our favourite pianist (and ex-Hillcrest parent), Rustom Battiwalla, will be joining Allan in a duet.
