DATE: Thursday, Jan. 30, 7pm
LOCATION: Baum Walker Hall at Walton Arts Center
The brainchild of internationally accomplished pianists Andreas Kern and Paul Cibis, Piano Battle places the two musicians head-to-head on stage, charming and enchanting the audience with a variety of classical pieces by composers such as Chopin, Liszt and Debussy – and improvising tunes based on recommendations from the audience.
But a competition wouldn’t be a competition without a winner, and here YOU will be the judge. All members of the audience are invited to vote on the pianists’ performances and will eventually crown the champion. 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!
