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.

Pianorama 2017 was held at Discover Christian Church on November 4th.  Eight of my students participated.  And one of them (Erin) was a "Special Performer" which is a real honor.  Congratulations to all of them.
