Are you looking for a concert experience out of the ordinary? Don’t miss the chance to hear the one and only performance of the 6 Pianos ensemble at 12:30 p.m. Friday, March 1 in the Paul Davenport Theatre. Admission is free.
This group was founded last year by the six Don Wright Faculty of Music master’s students in John Hess’ collaborative piano studio. Talisa Blackman, Eric Charbonneau, Denise Jung, Jieyin Li, Jennifer Mitchell and Marie-Michelle Raby are performing symphonic works arranged for six pianos.
How often can you hear in the same concert Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, Dukas’ Sorcerer’s Apprentice and Strauss’ Overture from Die Fledermaus Plus pieces by Prokofiev, Holst, Saint-Saëns, Dukas, Strauss and Gershwin.
