In order to create a culture of piano in our community, we strive to program events for all ages from preschoolers to adults and all levels of musicianship from appreciative listener to professional musician.
Toward that end, we opened our 2016-17 season with a workshop for a lesser-served group: the adult piano enthusiast. In October, pianist Paul Roberts from England spent 3 days giving lessons, master classes, and a concert to a mixed group of participants and observers, including computer programmers, a real estate broker, retired professors, a researcher, musicians and music teachers. It was a joyful, learning-intensive weekend.
Reminder: Returning by popular demand is pianist, Inon Barnatan, whose sensitive, poetic playing and technical fireworks thrilled us last time.
