In her show 88 Pianos I Have Known JAN PRESTON shares with us her passion for pianos. Projected images combine with unforgettable biographical stories, original songs and piano music, which will move you from tears to laughter. Underpinned by Jan’s thrilling virtuosity, audiences will be tapping and clapping, and may leave never looking at a piano in quite the same way again!
