Piano Ends Here: The Royal Room 8/15 at 8pm

In celebration of the major overhaul of the Royal Room Steinway B and its tentative absence while it is undergoing repairs, The Royal Room presents “Piano Ends Here” on Monday, August 15th. Using a bizarre and very out of tune piano, the evening will be a preview of composer Wayne Horvitz's “21 Pianos” which will be created by many pianists in the state of Minnesota during the months of September-November. In this incarnation, local Seattle pianists - all past luminaries of the Piano Starts Here series - will each perform a piece of standard repertoire of their choosing, and an improvisation. The newly refurbished Steinway B will return in late August and in plenty of time for “Piano Starts Here: Alice Coltrane and Lil’ Hardin” on Wednesday, September 21st.

Performers for the night include:
Ryan Burns
Robin Holcomb
Alex Guilbert
Dawn Clement
Tim Kennedy
Wayne Horvitz
Andrew Olmstead
