STAND-UP comedian, musician and Lancaster graduate Rainer Hersch returns to the university this week to answer some awkward questions in a hilarious show.

Rainer will attempt to answer “What do conductors actually do?” and “How can I play an instrument without practising?”

All Classical Music Explained is a witty hour long journey through the world of classical music peppered with irreverent spoofs and the common touch.

The show combines stand-up comedy, Rainer’s virtuosity as a pianist and his fanaticism for the world’s most beautiful music.
