    Stories from Sheet Music: Piano Recital

    Thursday 27 February

    Join us for a live piano performance

    Sheet music was a bestseller at M&S at the start of the 20th century. Customers could buy folk songs, music for dancing, Music Hall favourites and Christmas carols. 

    As part of a project with the Leeds International Piano Competition a group of people living with dementia have chosen their favourite pieces from the Archive's extensive collection, and created programme notes to help others understand the music. Join us for a live piano performance of music chosen by the group.

    12:30pm-1:30pm

    Light refreshments included.

    Booking is essential, visit our Eventbrite page to reserve your free place.

    I had no idea M&S used to sell sheet music, wow! What a lovely idea this is, inviting people living with dementia to select their choice of music, it will be nostalgic too I suspect. Live piano music with M&S refreshments.... what's not to like?! I'm sure it'll be a wonderful event enjoyed by all attending. :)
