Piano Go Round


Carn to Cove announces a special fund-raising celebrity piano recital to launch a project to raise funds for a touring piano for Cornwall.

Piano Go Round is the appeal to provide a first class grand piano that will be available for villages, music societies, young performers at an affordable price. Currently hire & transport costs make the programming of song, chamber, keyboard and piano music of concert quality difficult for rural communities. Administered by Carn to Cove, who manage a network of promoters all over Cornwall, the piano will be available for booking by partners and will be based in a Cornish venue as a permanent feature.
