Our Lids Open Day ( Summer ~ Part II ) finds us back at City halls ( Glasgow's oldest performance venue ) as part of the 2017 Merchant City Festival. If you have ever wanted to play on the main stage in the Grand Hall . . . now's your chance ! Even though we are now fully booked you are still welcome to come along on the day and take a chance on getting an empty slot that can sometimes open up when people drop out at the last minute. There is bucket loads going on around Candleriggs over the course of the week during the festival. Check out their online brochure ~ here

Click on the photo of Beth Moore, enjoying " the best 20 minutes of my life " at one of our previous Lids Open Days to take a virtual tour of the Grand Hall for an unusual viewpoint on where you will be playing. You can also get a good sense of this event as a whole from watching a short film Charlie Stuart made at MQC during our 2015 Summer LOD . . . here

This event can offer an invaluable opportunity for you to play, listen, experiment, doodle, sing . . . just you, alone at the piano. 

This event is an opportunity for you to enjoy that experience and ( if you wish ) let yourself respectfully request that whoever there ( friends & family ) consider taking a take a wee step back to allow an extra breathing space from the pressures that can often exist to perform  or entertain. This event is intended to offer people a chance to play a high quality acoustic piano and to make a clearer connection with your own musical voice. This is something worthwhile in its own right, though if you also want to play in public with more confidence you will know that we need opportunities to sense how we are walking on stage.

The choice is yours . . . to invite friends & family to listen while you play ( along with other participants/ listeners in the hall ) or to request ( on the booking form ) that you have no audience at all . . . and simply have a rare opportunity to play alone.

LOD ( Summer II ) Sunday July 30th, City Halls
