Listening to a great pianist on a CD is like seeing a Polaroid snapshot of Vincent Van Gogh’s “Starry Night.” It’s just not the same as a live performance.

Come to the Steinway SPIRIO lounge during the 2019 Concours d’Elegance of America and experience a “live” performance by immortal pianists such as Horowitz, Cliburn, Gould, and Gershwin, as well as living artists like Olga Kern, Anderson and Roe, and Lang Lang, all performed on a Steinway SPIRIO! You’ll be amazed and inspired as you hear these great pianists and compare the exact same piece of music as played and interpreted by multiple pianists. You will also hear special performances by Steinway Artists Cliff Monear and Pierre Fracalanza.

The SPIRIO lounge will be located in the lobby to the Grand Ballroom, inside The Inn at St. John’s. Stop by Friday evening or any time on Saturday and Sunday. Please call Tim Hoy or Wilbur Miller at 248-560-9200 for more information.

It’s Here!

An Evening with the Great Artists!

Wednesday, June 26, 2019 @ 7:00PM

Tickets: $10
All proceeds will benefit the Steinway Society Scholarship Fund
Admission payable at the door

Art is the ability to take a thought, feeling and emotion and express them through a medium. The painter leaves us with an image for centuries of art enthusiasts to see. But the art of the pianist dissipates the second the finger leaves the key. Recordings fail to express the true emotions of a live performance. You simply had to be there!

Until now …

Now you can hear these great artists in concert once again! It’s here! Our new Steinway SPIRIO 9’ concert grand can reproduce the repertoire of the world’s greatest immortal pianists. Classical and jazz artists like Horowitz, Art Tatum, Van Cliburn, Bill Evans, George Gershwin and many more. As you listen and watch on the big screen, they will take your breath away with a performance that is indistinguishable from “live”.

This show, complete with surprises, will be narrated by Tim Hoy, who has been the Steinway Representative since 1977. He has worked with many of these great artists and has some great stories to tell. This is a must-see for the music aficionado. You will leave enriched by the artistry of these performances.

“We Play the Theme. You Guess the Movie”

featuring Cliff Monear & Pierre Fracalanza, piano

Wednesday, June 19, 2019 @ 7:00PM

General Admission: $20
Steinway Society Members: $15
Cash or check, payable at the door

Attention all you movie fans… we’re gonna have some fun…

Some of the world’s greatest music was created for the silver screen. Sometimes they were from blockbuster movies that won an Academy Award for best song, or just a beautiful tune woven into a really dumb movie.

We’ll weave the songs into medleys starting from the 30s to today.  But this is an audience participation night. You have to guess the name of the song and the movie it went with. The most points win the prizes. (Those caught cheating by using Google will be forced to dance the polka alone in front of the audience. This will be live-streamed online for the world to see).

And who’s going to take on this pianistic task? None other than my two favorite pianists:  the great Cliff Monear and Pierre Fracalanza.  They are going to use a variety of instruments to achieve the dramatic effects that you would expect to hear from some of these great songs.  Only one problem … I am not telling them what I want them to play until the day of the concert, so they will have to do all this on the fly. I am certain this will create some very humorous moments. If anything at all, you can expect them both to be exhausted by the end of this show …

So come on in and may the best movie buff win!

Tim
