“Duo Piano Fireworks: From Sea to Shining C” will be presented on Friday September 2, 7:00 p.m. and will feature Tracy Cowden from Blacksburg and David Stewart Wiley on duo pianos.
Hear two grand pianos, 176 keys dueling in harmony, as they kick off the Labor Day weekend with some exciting piano fireworks. Maestro David Stewart Wiley and piano virtuoso Tracy Cowden have collaborated together in planning this special program. Favorites for two pianos include the Rachmaninoff Romance, Grieg Norwegian Dance, selections from Petrouchka, a Hungarian Dance and the Haydn Variations by Brahms, plus a memorable Gershwin Porgy and Bess Fantasy and piano music from Maestro Wiley’s new score to our locally filmed “Lake Effects” movie starring Jane Seymour.
