I also only perform on a real piano,
along with the below small, but mutually beneficial criterion list:
A real piano in a non designated prayer room,
(not a keyboard - even hidden inside a real piano case, which I sometimes find).
A minimum one hour set up time allowed
Allowed as required to move the piano so the right hand side (curve side) faces towards the audience.
re Covid; a safe distance can be maintained or a screen put up as required, but I am not able to perform wearing a mask.
I can not perform while people eat.
Drinks or food can be served before, after or in an intermission but not during the show.
NON ESSENTIALS but preferable:
Doors open to performance area at least a half an hour prior to performance start time
A seated venue
Show time basically to be 45 mins, likely to run for an hour, with an allowance for a further extra half hour run on maximum
An in tune piano for best results, with all notes working
No hidden / out of sight corners in the room.
If an area in the room has no line of sight to the performance area, if possible it should be closed off (see video).
Thank you for your understanding and patience,
looking forwards to a very special event for all.
*One Hour set up
Sometimes an hour and a half, access to the performance area, especially on the first time.
It’s ok if other people are there.
Once it's all set up their's only a sound check for 5 mins max for the dynamics for that room.
rig set up: 20 min
sound test: 20 min
meet with people: 20 min
buffer just in case 30 min
