Chris Ball, supporter of Somerset Sight is embarking on a 26 Hour Pianothon from Monday 12th April.

He will be doing a mixture of playing via zoom and at Somerset Sight HQ in Taunton.

We would love for you to come along and listen and support him.
He will be live at Somerset Sight on Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10am-1pm and then from 2pm-5pm. Saturday afternoon will focus on Children's themed music.
We will have refreshments available, a cake stall and Raffle.

As pianist, singer and conductor, Chris has been active in the Taunton area for many years. He has been music director of societies in Wellington and Taunton, most recently MD of Somerset Opera.
Some of these activities have been reduced recently by his sight loss, but of course he has always been at the piano, accompanying singers and instrumentalists in rehearsal and performance.

He approaches this "pianothon" with much experience, some trepidation but a good deal of enthusiasm.

Please support Somerset Sight and Chris by making an online donation and joining us for one of the live sessions. Somerset Sight Pianothon (
