A very interesting event at Janet's Music Piano Recital in the city. The performers were dressed up according to the character of the piece.​
The recital was held at a neo - classical building with good acoustics.​
There were 51 items of performance on the nine foot long concert grand piano, which was a one time studio piano for the ten television network.​
Janet's Music annual piano recital has always been the highlight amongst other events throughout the year.
