Music on the Green concert: Tau Wey, piano solo

Tau Wey's exciting pianism combined with his penchant for unusual yet captivating music will ensure yet another memorable lunchtime event.

Tau believes that music needs to reach out to everyone and has embraced a concert repertoire that goes beyond the standard classical composers.  Accordingly folk music, musical numbers, pop and sometimes even music hall songs tend to feature in his performance.  An excellent combination to provide another uplifting occasion at Christ Church.
