ON the last Thursday of alternate months, starting in January, that fine old watering hole, The Rosstown Hotel at the corner of Koornang Road and Dandenong Road, Carnegie presents a smorgasbord of piano players from 12 noon to 3pm.
One definition of “smorgasbord”: It is typically a celebratory meal and guests can help themselves from a range of dishes laid out for their choice.
Well that seems a fair description of what you can expect on Piano Lunch days. From 6 to 12 of the town’s best piano players (depends on how many turn up on the day) take turns at the baby grand to entertain you over lunch. It’s a free concert; all you pay for is your meal and drinks. To book ring 9571 1033.
The next PIANO LUNCH is on Thursday 29 September. Musicians you might hear include Rex Green, Kim Harris, Graham Coyle, Keith Stevens, Michael Llewellyn, Jeff Bartrum, Neville Turner, Kathy Connor, John Adams, Ken Cowan or Jo Abbott.
Special guest this month will be Barrie Boyes on tenor and alto sax.
PERHAPS WE’LL SEE YOU THERE.
