What is Piano Extravaganza - 2012?
It is an event that the Harrisburg Music Teachers organize. It is a collection of over 200 students and pianists ranging in age from barely a toddler to senior citizens. It is groups of up to 32 playing in ensemble - on the same stage - at the same time - in front of an audience that exceeded 1000. Their repertoire ranges from folk tunes to arrangements of pieces originally written for band or orchestra.
