Piano Hero: Shakespearo

The wait is over! Piano Hero 2010 finally debuts on Wednesday, March 31, at noon in Phillips Recital Hall (Gordon College, Wenham, MA). Michael Monroe and Nathan Skinner will be tackling 2-piano arrangements of two orchestral masterworks inspired by the Bard himself: Mendelssohn's Overture to A Midsummer Night's Dream and Tchaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet. You'll hear fairies scurrying, donkeys braying, families feuding, and love blooming - that's assuming our heroes can hit the right buttons as the scores go flying by. Shakespeare's all about the drama, after all.
