About the Event

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.
