For many years I have been intrigued by the concept of a multi-piano concert. This year, thanks to an invitation from the Kansas City Music Teachers Association, six of my students and I are going to participate for the first time in their flagship event featuring 16 pianos and 32 pianists! We are so excited to have this opportunity and are having a great time working on the fabulous repertoire selected for the occasion.
However, I couldn’t help but be lured in when I saw a blog post recently titled, “Ever Heard 50 Pianos Playing Together?” Apparently, at the International Choir Championships coming up on November 8-14, 5- pianos will be placed at the base of the Canton Tower in China for the closing concert. BTW, have you ever heard of these choir championships and the World Choir Games? I’m not a singer, but what a unique cultural experience it would be to go and observe something like this!
