The Inside Out Piano

29th March 2020

15:00 - View all performance times

Turner Sims Concert Hall , Southampton University University Road

To mark International Piano Day, come and experience the piano like never before: strummed like a guitar, singing like a whale and even swinging in mid-air!

Pianist and composer Sarah Nicolls invented her Inside-Out Piano so that she could play its strings more easily. This is a grand piano whose strings run straight upwards from the keyboard, shaped so that the audience see into the instrument: the guts and moving parts are literally on show. Sarah plucks and strums the strings, plays harmonics, works with objects like glass and rubber balls to excite the strings and uses the whole body of the piano like a drum.

Hear familiar melodies in new ways, and discover this much-loved instrument afresh. After the concert, children will have a chance to explore the piano close-up and talk to Sarah.
