Description

The Morecambe Bay Piano Group was set up to extend the reach of such groups into north Lancashire and Cumbria and to build on the success of the Clitheroe Piano Meetup. It gives pianists of all ages and abilities an opportunity to develop their performance skills and to present their chosen pieces which can come from absolutely any genre of the piano repertoire. It provides opportunities to build new friendships with like minded people. Children, teenagers and adult learners attend and are able to practice their exam pieces on a good grand piano in the presence of a supportive audience. Experienced pianists are also members of the group. Young people under the age of 18 need to be accompanied by an adult.
There is opportunity to verbally share our experiences during the afternoon break for drinks and biscuits.

There is no admission charge but members are requested to leave a small donation to enable us to pay the hall rental.
Meetings occur at six to seven week intervals.

Did You Know Piano Facts

1709
The year 1709 is the one most sources give for the appearance of aninstrument which can truly be called a "Pianoforte." The writer Scipione Maffei wrote an article that year about the pianoforte created by Bartolomeo Cristofori (1655-1732), who had probably produced four "gravicembali col piano e forte" or harpsichords with soft and loud. This instrument featured the first real escapement mechanism and is often called a "hammer harpsichord." The small hammers were leather covered. It had bichords throughout, and all the dampers were wedge-shaped. By 1726 he seems to have fitteda stop for the action to make the hammers strike only one of twostrings. He had produced about twenty pianos by this time and thenhe is presumed to have gone back to making harpsichords,probably from the lack of interest in his pianos. Three of hispianos remain extant today: one with four octaves, dated 1720, is in NewYork; one with four and a half octaves, from 1726, is in Leipzig,Germany; and there is one in Rome from 1722. There are approximately ten plucked instruments surviving today with the name Cristofori on them.
