TALES OF A TRAVELLED PIANO
Date: Friday 17th February, 2017
Time: 7.30 - 9.30pm
Cost: £10 (by ticket)
Tara Centre Fundraising Group present…
This evening of fun, entertainment and education is based on Elisabeth’s book ‘Tales of a Travelled Piano’, recently launched at the Strule Arts Centre here in Omagh. The story line follows the adventures of a German piano from the household of Clara Schumann into its adopted country during one of Ireland’s most difficult periods in history. Elisabeth will regale her audience with humour and facts, clothed in plain language together with pictures and pre-recorded music.
‘The Piano’ extends an invitation to take a fresh look at how Ireland remembers its musical heritage, raising a voice for peace and reconciliation with the various cultural and historical roots that have co-existed on the island of Ireland.
An evening for seekers of entertainment, of history and of music alike!
