We will once again be featuring pianists and musicians of all ages and abilities, so join the concert and enjoy the music from musicians in and around our community.
Last year over 60 pianists of all ages performed during the day sessions of the Pentland Piano Festival. The audience were amazed at the breadth of talent that arrived from Penicuik, Midlothian and further afield from the UK and Europe. The evening concert attracted 27 performers to play their own selection of music, some which had been personally composed by the player. A selection of duets, using the two pianos that were available in 2019, was a new addition to the programme.
The Piano Festival founder and leader is Graham McDonald, a music teacher at Penicuik Beeslack Community High School, and is a well-loved and widely known virtuoso pianist.
