RESCHEDULED: Ten Grands Celebrates 20 Years of Supporting Music Education

WHERE: Keller Auditorium, Portland
WHEN: Nov. 15, 2020, 5 p.m.

The performance is a feat in itself: 10 grand pianos on one stage, showcasing individual performers and masterfully-arranged pieces in styles that range from classical and jazz to New Age and contemporary pop. To date, it remains the only such show of its kind in terms of piano count, but also longevity. What began as a seed of an idea on a napkin 20 years ago between pianist, composer, and co-producer Michael Allen Harrison and co-producer, stage director Greg Tamblyn is now an iconic Portland tradition. And this year promises to be its best yet with some of the Pacific Northwest’s biggest piano icons and freshest talent coming together in one place, including Michael Allen Harrison, Tom Grant, William Chapman Nyaho, Mac Potts, Hailey Potts – with special guests Thomas Lauderdale and Hunter Noack.
