Just a quick reminder that my show is coming up next Saturday the 18th at Piedmont Piano! Where did that time fly to?! As I mentioned earlier this year the store only is allowed to sell about 50 seats and the show in January sold out. Tickets have been selling for a couple of weeks now, so its best to call the phone number below and buy tickets to reserve a seat in advance. It will be possible to buy tickets for cash or credit card at the door if there are seats still available.

My daughter Zoë will be filming the show so the audience will be part of the film. We're also going for another audio recording so this could end up as a CD as well as going on YouTube and other media.

I'll be doing a Schuamann Suite of Three Romances and the rest of the show will be original pieces of mine with a lot of opportunity for free form improvisation and it will all be on the fabulous Fazioli piano again. That piano is a very special aspect of the music all by itself!
