Pianist with Altitude

Hear Carole and Neil’s story of their fundraising piano project on the Taglang Pass, 5328m, in Ladakh, aka Little Tibet, in the Indian Himalayas, with photos, videos and live piano performance. Short talk by a representative of the Office of Tibet, London.

On July 12th this year a piano was heard in Ladakh, the highest piano recital of its kind, ever, in the world. A baby grand was taken up to the mountain pass and Neil’s performance was watched and heard by a small, select audience, and filmed, until the camera froze!

Carole and Neil are coming to Sibford to tell us how all this came about, and how they raised over £6,000, enough to erect two plastic-free cafés on a popular trekking route in Ladakh, and to pay for a cook/carer in an old people’s home in the Langtang Valley, Nepal.
