THIBODAUX – The Department of Music at Nicholls State University will host the second annual Monster Piano Concert on Tuesday, Sept. 22, in Talbot Hall Auditorium on campus.
Eighteen pianists, including faculty, students, alumni, and guests, will perform on six Steinway pianos, including the university’s own concert grand and three others, plus two more provided by Hall Piano Company, Louisiana’s exclusive Steinway dealer.
“Last year’s concert was as exciting for us as it was for the audience,” Dr. Carol Britt, head of the Department of Music, said. “It will be quite a spectacle to see 18 pianists on six pianos for the finale. Last year the performers included music faculty, piano students and piano graduates. This year we will have many of the same pianists – plus a few of our piano-playing friends. It will be wonderfully entertaining.”
The evening will begin with wine and hors d’oeuvres at 6:30 p.m., followed by the performance at 7:30. Tickets are $50 per person and include food, drink and entertainment. All proceeds will go toward purchasing additional Steinway pianos for the music program at Nicholls.
