A Piece of You 3 - 5 Apr 2021

A Piece of You is a live intimate and interactive performance for a tiny audience; a private online concert for one or two children and their family.

Connecting with you all the way from Scotland, performer Greg Sinclair will turn your thoughts and feelings into your very own music score using colourful and expressive graphic notation. He will then play your music on his cello for a completely unique, once-off performance that's all about you!

Afterwards, you will receive a copy of your visual musical score and a recording of your music.
