On January 6th, 2019, hundreds of pianists of all ages from the Kansas City metro area came together to perform in the annual KCMTA Multi-Piano Concerts at Bell Cultural Events Center in Olathe, Kansas.
This year’s theme was “On With the Show,” featuring music from Broadway and Hollywood. Selections included hits such as “When You Wish Upon a Star,” “The Surrey With the Fringe on Top,” and “Spoonful of Sugar.”
The Multi-Piano Concert is a unique performance opportunity for students of KCMTA members. The event features 28 performers on 14 grand pianos simultaneously playing duet repertoire under the direction of a conductor. The concerts, which originated in 1993, have grown from 200 participating students to over 550 performers.
