Yamaha artists at Malvern Piano Festival

The piano company has a creative association with the event.
The perfect festival combination
A host of Yamaha artists including Jools Holland and his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra will take to the stage at the Malvern Piano Festival this summer.

The fest, which takes place between June 1st and 3rd, presents a range of genres of art forms all centred around the piano.

Solo recitals, rhythm and blues, chamber music and children's theatre combine to make an event that is sure to delight.

Yamaha has a long-standing creative association with the event – all artists will perform on a Yamaha piano and the company will also be supplying its flagship CFX concert grand piano for the festival.

If you're going, head along to the foyer where there will be a special piano you can play on yourself.

Malvern marketing director Fred Moroni said: "The Malvern Festival has been a major cultural force in Malvern for over 80 years both as a drama festival and as a music festival.

"This festival unites those two themes and places the piano centre stage in a way that fully demonstrates the versatility of the instrument."

The festival is inspired by the Malvern Festival, which was founded in 1929 by the playwright George Bernard Shaw and theatre director Sir Barry Jackson.
