Keyboard Conversations: A Bernstein Birthday Bash!

Classical, Talks/Lectures

Keyboard Conversations®...are a concert-plus with lively commentary by renowned pianist, Jeffrey Siegel. A Keyboard Conversation is primarily a concert and each work on the program is performed in its entirety. As the significant plus, Mr. Siegel speaks briefly and informally to the audience before performing each composition, illustrating with a few pertinent musical examples from the keyboard. Our hope is that this unique format will make the music more accessible and the listening experience more focused and meaningful. Virtuoso piano arrangements of songs from West Side Story, his intimate Anniversaries, as well as Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue and Bernstein's stunning piano transcription of Copland's El Salon Mexico. All patrons are invited to the post-concert Dessert Reception with Mr. Siegel in the Leftwich Grand Foyer.
