Eisemann Center for Performing Arts presents Keyboard Conversations: A Bernstein Birthday Bash
Keyboard Conversations® is a “concert-plus” with lively commentary by renowned pianist, Jeffrey Siegel. A Keyboard Conversation is primarily a concert and each work on the program is performed in its entirety. As the significant plus, Mr. Siegel speaks briefly and informally to the audience before performing each composition, illustrating with a few pertinent musical examples from the keyboard.
Selections for the concert will include virtuoso piano arrangements of songs from West Side Story, his intimate Anniversaries, as well as Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" and Bernstein's stunning piano transcription of Copland's "El Salon Mexico." Guests will also enjoy a post-concert Dessert Reception with Mr. Siegel in the Leftwich Grand Foyer.
