Fierce Festival 2019 / Birmingham, UK / 15 – 20 October

Concerto No3 Participants Wanted

Join Artist Sarah Jane Norman and Fierce Festival for a one off experience in Birmingham Conservatoire!

Of all the works in the classical piano repertory, Rachmaninoff’s Concerto No. 3 has perhaps one of the most fearsome reputations.

Artist Sarah Jane Norman is exploring the “post virtuosic” by organising a concert where the Rach 3 is sight read by formerly prodigious pianists who no longer play piano regularly.

We are looking for participants who were previous piano prodigies, childhood Mozarts or musicians who have changed direction and moved away from the instrument – or even from performing altogether.

A chance to play in the Recital Hall at Birmingham’s Conservatoire. A chance to reconnect, challenge yourself, meet others, have fun, have a therapeutic moment, perform and work with an international artist! The performance will take place throughout the day (11am – 11pm) of Sunday October 5th as part of Fierce Festival.

Each pianist will play in shifts. There will be a chance to meet the other participants and see the space on Saturday 4 October at 6pm.
