Multi Piano Festival

November 21, 2015, 7:30pm

UNF Lazzara Performance Hall

The Piano Festival dates from 1929 when a ten-piano festival was held. Through the years, there have been as many as fifty pianos in the festival. This event has been held in several locations throughout the city, including Swisher Gymnasium, Friday Musicale, Civic Auditorium, Florida Theatre and the University of North Florida’s Lazzara Hall. Thirty to one hundred students perform simultaneously one-piano, four-hand literature or two-piano, four-hand literature under the guidance of a conductor. This type of ensemble experience is a unique event for pianists. Plans are underway for the next Multi-Piano Festival scheduled for Saturday, November 21, 2015. “The World is a Stage” will feature music with opera and musical theater themes. With the financial assistance the UNF Music Department, we will be performing in Lazarra Hall on the UNF campus. Participants will range from Levels 1 – 5, Advanced (high school) and teacher performers. Tickets are $5 at the door. Doors open at 6:45p.
