Nicholls to host third annual Monster Piano Concert

THIBODAUX – The Department of Music at Nicholls State University will host the third annual Monster Piano Concert on Tuesday, Sept. 21, in Talbot Hall Theater on campus.

Sixteen pianists, including faculty, students, alumni and guests, will perform on six Steinway pianos, including the university’s own concert grand and four others, plus one more provided by Hall Piano Company, Louisiana’s exclusive Steinway dealer.

“Three Monster Piano Concerts in a row mean that we have a new tradition at Nicholls,” Dr. Carol Britt, head of the Department of Music, said. “Steinway pianos are also a tradition – one of fine workmanship, resulting in fine music. This summer we received another grand for the piano studio and four uprights for other studios and practice rooms, so our own Steinway tradition is moving right along. Faculty, students and friends are all looking forward to entertaining you with an evening of piano delights that showcase the Department of Music – hard work and great fun.”

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. Student tickets are $25 each, provided the student presents a valid Colonel Card. All proceeds will go toward purchasing additional Steinway pianos for the music program at Nicholls.
