Grand Piano Spectacular

Thu Jul 21, 2022

Orchestra Hall

Let one master pianist loose on the 88 keys and—voila! Magic. Now, multiply that by four and unite them all on one stage, and the effect is spectacular. Jon Kimura Parker has tapped three favorite pianists with deep Minnesota roots to join him for this special concert. Four piano virtuosos making a glorious sound—we imagine Beethoven’s spirit is smiling!

Note: The Minnesota Orchestra does not perform on this program.

Free post-concert entertainment: 4:00–6:00PM Heart and Soul Drum Academy / PEAVEY PLAZA

Pre-order your Bubbles and Bites: A sweet and savory sharable basket of goodies, paired with Prosecco Rosé. Learn more
