The Olympianist

thumb-olymTo raise money for music and childrens' charities, Anthony - 'the Olympianist' - will cycle with piano 'in tow' from Land's End to John O'Groats to complete 1,200 miles in 21 days. With a piano trailing in his 'BeethoVAN' the avid cyclist will cover up to 100 miles a day, giving 27 concerts en route. The Herculean journey across Britain's hilly countryside will see Anthony ascend more than 20,000 metres – the equivalent of more than twice the elevation of Mt. Everest. He will perform in established venues and remote locations with his piano on a pop-up stage on the back of the BeethoVAN.

His piano odyssey encompasses concert venues, market squares, cliff-tops, quarries and fields. Highlights of the tour include a concert with the Manchester Camerata, a recital in the Market Square at Newbury Spring Festival, a cliff-top performance in Portland and a concert on the shores of Lake Windermere.
