Multi-Piano & Guitar Christmas Festival

Each year the McPherson Area Piano Teachers' League puts together a Multi-Piano & Guitar Christmas Festival. Now, I know it's not Halloween yet, but these kinds of events take planning, and it's actually only 8 lessons away!

The way it works is that area music students learn duets in their lessons, and on December 15th, we line up several pianos on-stage at the Wesley Black Fine Arts Auditorium and area piano students will take the stage to perform these duets all together, with guitar performances spread throughout the show as well. All to create a massive Christmas Concert for the community.

Students who are beginning staff readers through advanced are invited to participate, and I've already begun having conversations with eligible students in our studio about which pieces they can start practicing. (So no pre-readers yet, but it would be a great idea to attend and get a preview at what you could be doing next year!). 

 As you can imagine, multiple pianists playing at once does take a little bit of coordination, so we will be having mandatory rehearsals the morning of the 15th, and a reverse run-through right before the show in the afternoon. The rehearsals helps us make sure that everyone is on the same page (literally & figuratively!), so if you are participating, please to be sure to plan your schedule for the 15th accordingly. 

If you have any questions about the festival, or other holiday repertoire, please don't hesitate to ask. And we'd love to be able to see who's planning to attend & invite the community to attend, so please feel free to RSVP and share the MAPTL Page's Facebook Event.
