Merry Christmas from &Piano
We know that 2020 has been a particularly challenging year for many people, including ourselves. We’ve had to adapt quickly, change our plans, learn new skills – and so many things, including our events, have been cancelled.
So we’re delighted to be able to share with you two recordings we’ve produced, recorded in the beautiful Huddersfield Town Hall, to help spread a bit of hope and cheer during a very different and unusual Christmas period.
Soprano Ann Wilkes, who grew up in Huddersfield and is now based in Manchester having studied at the RNCM, performs ‘I Know That My Redeemer Liveth’ from Handel’s Messiah – a Yorkshire musical staple, most famously performed every year (normally) by the Huddersfield Choral – and ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’, a poignant song made famous by Judy Garland, who performed it in the MGM film musical ‘Meet Me In St. Louis’
Thank you to all our supporters and followers who have encouraged us, watched our events, and helped us throughout the year. Thank you to all our new 88 Keys members, and we hope that we will be able to bring you more music in the new year.
