If you're able to get out to Denver next weekend, this is a once-in-a-lifetime event not to be missed and a groundbreaking moment in the collaborative piano field. Unfortunately, I'm booked solid here in Toronto for the next few weeks so I won't be able to attend. Feel free to leave a comment or send me an email if you're attending and have any experiences or observations you'd like to share. Thanks to the many dedicated teachers who worked so tirelessly for so many years to make this happen!
