Piano Heroica

Yes, Piano Hero is back for Level Three this week with, appropriately enough, Beethoven's Symphony No. 3, the "Eroica." Many have asked to have these performances start a little later than noon, since classes get out at 12:25. The "Eroica" is a long symphony though (at least 45 minutes), and we have to be done by 1pm, so this week we'll plan to start at about 12:10. As always, the doors will be open and you're free to come for as much or as little as you'd like.

We'll be projecting the score (if all goes as planned) this week, so you'll be able to see exactly what our pianists are seeing and (hopefully) playing. And, for the first time, Michael and Nathan will each get his own piano. That's twice the Steinway for your money (free admission).  If you want a sneek peak, here's what the score looks like. Now the only question is, can they beat the score? Come find out.
