Free concert at Kincumber

The concert will be presented by Pianos for the People

Community music project Pianos for the People will present a free concert featuring the local Ephemera Choir and Ensemble at Kincumber Neighbourhood Centre on Saturday, April 30, at 7.30 pm.

At the heart of the Pianos for the People project is music recycling and the importance of gifting, restoring and reinventing unwanted pianos.

Avoca-based composer and filmmaker Yantra de Vilder started the project in 2020 with a view to promoting live music in public spaces. Since that time Yantra and her team of donors, restorers and hosts have placed a dozen public pianos around the state.

The restored pianos were a huge hit recently at The Manly Festival where members of the public could freely knock out a performance or attempt a tune they had learnt from years gone by.

Yantra’s vision as an artist and composer is to show how accessible music and colour in the streets play a vital role in our recovery from the disjunction of the last two years.

Entry is by donation at the door and monies raised will be used to send eight pianos to the Lismore Conservatorium of Music. Food will be available on the night by popular local gastronome Jesus Loves Falafel.

A second free concert will be held at the Waterfront Plaza, The Entrance at 7pm on Saturday, May 21.
