Yamaha announces The Greatest Showman competition12:53, 3rd January 2018
Yamaha is offering pianists the chance to win a Clavinova CLP-635 to celebrate the release of The Greatest Showman.
Inspired by the imagination of P.T. Barnham and starring Hugh Jackman and Michelle Williams, the film celebrates the birth of show business.
Yamaha has marked its release by installing eight specially commissioned ‘Greatest Showman’ Clavinova digital pianos in eight major shopping centres throughout the UK (Brent Cross, London; The Oracle, Reading; Centrale, Croydon; Westquay, Southampton; Bull Ring, Birmingham; Victoria Quarter, Leeds; Silverburn, Glasgow; and Union Square, Aberdeen) and at Yamaha’s flagship store, Yamaha Music London.
Pianists are invited to video themselves performing ‘This is Me’, the film’s title track, on any Clavinova. An extract of the sheet music is printed on a limited number of Yamaha Greatest Showman Pianos, but entrants can play any part of the song.
Entrants should upload their videos to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, tagging it with #YamahaShowman and ensuring their post is public.
