Pretty much everywhere nowadays there are wonderful local festivals in so many different guises. These strike me as celebration of the wealth of talent that exists in every community.
This year Pianolobby is sponsoring 3 different events in South London. 2 are piano festivals and the other is a more general Arts event.
The first in the year in a brand new event, a competitive festival for pianists. This has been set up by Liz Giannopoulos from Encore music. It is open to pianist of all standards, but we are keen to support pianists at the beginning of their playing and we are sponsoring the grade 1-2 class. The festival is on Saturday 7th March.

Next in the year is the Dulwich festival, which celebrates everything Dulwich. It is an annual Arts festival in May and has a huge range of events. There are art exhibitions, music in all its shapes and forms, walks, street art, discussion groups, comedy and fairs where there are bouncy castles to beer tents and food stalls to jewelry stalls. The list could go on and on. We are sponsoring an event and will keep you posted which one it is when all is confirmed.Do keep an eye open for an updated website at www.dulwichfestival.co.uk
The Dulwich Piano Festival is now a very well established annual event and a must for local pianists. It is run by the industrious Lorraine Liyanage who also runs the SE22 Piano School as well as so many other piano related events. Pianolobby is a proud event sponsor. The Piano Festival takes place on the 7th June at the James Allen Girls school. For more information have a look at the beautiful website which is: www.dulwichmusicfestival.co.uk
I hope to see you at these fantastic events.
