It’s Pianorama Sunday afternoon at the Dave Dunnet Theatre in the new Oak Bay High.
The show at 1:00PM features Toni Blodgett, Brent Jarvis, Karel Roessingh, Louise Rose, Aurthur Rowe & Jan Stirling, the creme d’ la creme of the city’s pianists.
A special guest added to the list is classic music student, 17 year old Julia Zhu, who will perform at piece by Liszt.
The show, organized by music writer Joesph Blake, is a fundraiser for a new, much more appropriate grand piano for the Dunnet Community theatre.
The school’s old upright is not horrible, but when you have a new four million dollar theatre, you need to upgrade the equipment too.
Blake & the pianists have their eye on a 7 foot Steinway, but if the fundraisers go well, they’d love to get the nine foot version…it’s about twice the price.
Tickets are $35 at the door on Sunday.
