Have piano, will travel
Frenchwoman Claire Rouault performs a recital for the pupils at Richmond View School in Blenheim on Monday. Claire and her partner Jean-Francois Robert created Piano on Tour, which endeavours to make high-quality music concerts more accessible in New Zealand. The recital is part of the tour and followed from a performance at Nativity Church in Blenheim on Sunday. The pair carry around their full size concert grand piano in a horse-float, unpack it, shift it, have the recital, pack it up and move on to the next town in New Zealand.
