The Piano Ensemble Festival is an annual concert sponsored by FLMF during the winter season. It provides pianists the opportunity to play in an ensemble setting – something pianists rarely get to experience based on logistics. We provide six baby grand pianos on a stage with two or three performers at each piano (12-18 performers in each group), under the direction of a professional conductor. It is a “symphony” of pianos. Each group performs one long piece or two short pieces together. The concert consists of approximately 14-16 different groups of all ages and levels of difficulty. The concert is held at a local high school. See the links for more specific information and participation requirements for teachers, students and parents.
This year our students will be performing
under the baton of Paul Westray, a grad-
uate of the Armed Forces School of Music.
Paul joined the U. S. Marine Corps and
was selected for "The Commandant's Own"
- The United States Marine Drum & Bugle
Corps where he toured around the world
and performed for many Heads of State.
After duty in the Marines, Paul enjoyed
playing with the Washington Redskins
Marching Band. Over the past decade,
Paul has served as a volunteer music
instructor in the Loudoun County Public School System, including serving as the Pep Band Director and Marching Band - Visual Instructor/Show Coordinator at Woodgrove High School. Currently, Paul is serving as the Traditional Service Music Director and Worship Leader at Leesburg Community Church, and is a member of the Loudoun Jazz Ensemble and the Loudoun Chorale.
