Ohio's 21st Pianorama was held on Saturday, October 24, 2015 at OSU's Weigel Hall.

Pianorama evolves from a tradition that dates to the 18th and 19th centuries.  Johann Sebastian Bach composed music for two, three and four harpsichords.  Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart composed for two pianos.  In the 1820’s, it became stylish to hold concerts with three to six pianos with two pianists at each instrument.  Frederic Chopin participated in a Parisian concert in 1831 that included six pianos.  Franz Liszt also performed in a multiple piano concert in Milan in 1838.  In America, “monster” concerts were developed during the late 1800’s.  The opening ceremonies of the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics had a multiple piano concert.

The primary purpose of Pianorama is to give student pianists, who normally play as soloists, the opportunity to rehearse and perform in a large ensemble, and to learn the skills that come from this experience.  This event has been presented since 1977 by the Central East District of the Ohio Music Teachers Association, a 501(c)(3) affiliate of Music Teachers National Association.

I was one of two Co-Chairmen for Pianorama 2015.  The concerts were the culmination of countless hours of preparation, which took place over the last 18 months.  I also conducted the Advanced Ensemble.  AND seven of my students participated.
