The UofU Piano Area Monster Concert is a highlight every May. With 15 pianos on stage (5 grands and 10 uprights) and up to 30 performers playing at one time, it’s amazing. Usually 10 groups perform a piece centered around the concert “theme.”
For two years, a community group has been allowed to play with the other groups, organized by me! The secret to our success and sauce is a great piece/arrangement, outside rehearsal time as a group, and a percussionist.
For 2019, our group performed, “Tetris” for the video game theme. My student Elena performed.
For 2018, our group performed, “Fly Me to the Moon” for the “Out of this World” theme. My students Elena, Ben, Drew, and Damon performed.
