Ready for a Battle? Two World-Renowned Pianists Compete for Your Vote at Piano Battle
NORTHWEST ARKANSAS, Jan. 13, 2020 – If you love reality competition shows, then you don’t want to miss Piano Battle at Walton Arts Center on Thursday, Jan. 30 at 7 pm. The brainchild of internationally accomplished pianists Andreas Kern and Paul Cibis, Piano Battle puts the duo in head-to-head competition, charming and enchanting the audience with a variety of classical pieces, all to win your vote.
Presented as part of the 10x10 Arts Series, tickets are $10 and can be purchased in-person at the Walton Arts Center Box Office, by calling 479.443.5600 or by visiting waltonartscenter.org.
The two artists, with distinctly different performance styles, take turns performing pieces by composers such as Chopin, Liszt and Debussy and improvising based on audience suggestions. However, a competition wouldn’t be a competition without a winner, and at this show, you’ll be the judge. Part serious classical recital, part tongue-in-cheek performance, Piano Battle has the elegance of classical music, the excitement of rock and the energy of hip-hop, and winning the audience’s heart is the only thing that counts.
Walton Arts Center’s 10x10 Arts Series brings a variety of groundbreaking artists and awe-inspiring performances to Northwest Arkansas at a price that allows more people to experience live theater performances.
Patrons attending a 10x10 Arts Series performance are invited to a post-show Creative Conversation with Kern and Cibis led by a member of Walton Arts Center’s programming staff. Patrons can also share their thoughts about the show with the popular Post-It® Note responses in the Walker Atrium.
