Sterne and the Square Piano
A concert with David Owen Norris on a Square Piano of 1781 by Christopher Ganer - similiar to the Zumpe Piano that Sterne gave to Eliza Draper for her journey to India.
The performance will include examples of eighteenth-century songs from the collection at Shandy Hall - these will be their first modern performances - sung by Fiona Hymns and Jessica Gillingwater, students of the Royal Northern College of Music
The programme will also include music specifically designed for the Square Piano by Carl Friedrich Abel.
Ticket holders are invited to spend the afternoon in Shandy Hall gardens (bring a picnic) and the exhibition 'Eliza Draper - An Absent Presence' will be open in the gallery.
St. Michael's Church, Coxwold. 6.30pm
