Please find enclosed a list of requirements,
to deliver the best show for everyone.
I perform only on a real piano (not a keyboard - even hidden inside a real piano case, which you sometimes see).
Because a piano is by far more expressive than any keyboard.
A minimum one hour set up allowed. *(see below)
The right hand side (curve side) of the real piano towards the room; so that more people can see the keys
No "out of sight" corners in the room.
If a public area has no line of sight to the performance area it should be closed off somehow.
I do not perform / sing with a mask on.
A safe distance can be maintained or a screen put up as required.
Nor do I perform while people eat
Doors open to performance space at least a half an hour prior
A seated venue / theatre like
Show to run for an hour,
with an allowance for an extra half hour run on
An in tune piano for best results, with all notes working - though not as essential)
Thank you for your attention to the details,
looking forwards to a special time for everyone.
*One Hour set up
