Pause for a moment and stay in with Lakeside – Today, short piece by pianist Xenia Pestova Bennett

June 5th, 2020

While the doors may be closed, Lakeside Arts’ team, associate artists and the many fabulous companies and artists working with Lakeside Arts continue to work hard to bring insights, activities, recommended reading, music playlists and much more to help nourish as many souls as possible.

As part of this, Pro-Vice-Chancellor Professor Jessica Corner invited Lakeside to help find time away from lockdown video conferencing to pause, relax and think.

Lakeside Arts have responded by contacting some of their many artist friends who have provided short pieces to share with colleagues.

Over the next few weeks you’ll see contributions from professional artists, and from amongst the University’s own community of talented staff and students. Let us know what you think by using the hashtags #WeAreUoN and #InWithLakeside

Today (5 June) will feature a short performance by pianist, Xenia Pestova Bennett, called ‘Birthday’, written by Ed Bennett.

Assistant Professor Xenia Pestova Bennett is a musician who performs on piano, toy piano and magnetic resonator piano. ‘Birthday’ is performed on a grand piano.
