Adventures in Pianoland

From Standing Room Only, 2:50 pm on 11 October 2015

Creative sisters pianist Jan Preston and film director Gaylene Preston join forces for a new stage show about Jan's eventful life as a professional musician. In Adventures in Pianoland Jan reveals her longstanding and sometimes bumpy road to piano 'stardom'. She has played in almost every conceivable type of venue from dives in Soho to Concert Halls in Europe. She once played a white piano in a Sydney Mall every Friday to support her family. Gaylene is directing her little sister in the show. They talk about their shared memories of growing up in Greymouth and their experiences as freelance creative.
