Piano Party at Cardiff Central for Global Stars

Rail passengers at Cardiff Central Railway station were treated to the sounds of Pink, Taylor Swift, Foo Fighters and Billy Joel – but with a classical twist.

The global stars will be playing live in the Principality Stadium over the coming weeks, with Pink “getting the party started” this Tuesday.

To celebrate them coming to the city, Transport for Wales teamed up with young musicians from the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama, which is celebrating its 75th birthday this year, so they could blast out their most famous tracks – but on a classical piano.

Chloe Clayton and Jason Sones, both students of the Royal Welsh College played a range of famous hits including, ‘You Belong with Me’ by Taylor Swift, ‘Best of You’ by Foo Fighters, and of course, ‘Piano Man’ by Billy Joel.

Marie Daly, Chief Culture and Customer Officer at TfW said:

“We’ve already successfully delivered the rail services for a range of major events this year including the six nations, football qualifiers and most recently the Bruce Springsteen gig. For each event we bring tens of thousands of people in and out of the city within a small timeframe.

“We really excited about the gigs this summer and we’re prepared to provide rail services for those coming in and out of the city.

“It’s been great to welcome students from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama to Cardiff Central and have them play the piano for our customers. Wales is known for its love of music and what a way to celebrate.”
