WHO: YOU, along with piano teachers, piano players, and music-appreciators of all stripes.
Unique to this event is the integration of multiple genres of music. Always considered yourself
a purely classical enthusiast? Let’s see how the jazz cats swing it! Prefer a tangy jazz lick or
walking bass groove? Hear about Bach and Beethoven’s influence on the bluest of blue notes.

Students age 21 and under get the all-inclusive full pass for just $40.
