March 16th's Piano Showcase at the Tower Theatre features renowned classical pianist Sean Chen and boogie-woogie extraordinaire Arthur Migliazza.
Sean Chen is a genius at displaying the virtuosity and versatility of the grand instrument. An award-winning classical pianist (Cliburn International Piano Competition, American Pianists Awards), Chen is also in demand for creative collaborations and commissions. His exceptional transcriptions for the piano range from Beethoven’s 9th Symphony to video game music and everything in between.
Arthur Migliazza has been inducted into the Arizona Blues Hall of Fame, was a finalist at the 2010 and 2014 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, and in his 30+ years of performing has played on some of the world’s greatest stages, including Tchaikovsky Hall in Moscow as part of the sold-out Kings of Boogie Tour, Birdland Jazz Club in New York City, Benaroya Hall in Seattle, as well as on National Public Radio in the US.
Piano Showcase is a multi-genre event celebrating the versatility and virtuosity of the piano!
● On the afternoon of March 16, all ages are invited right up onto the Tower stage for a masterclass, workshop, and musical conversations. You don’t have to be a pianist to enjoy a masterclass; you just have to enjoy music! Both Chen and Migliazza are inspiring teachers and charismatic presenters.
● At 7:30 p.m. also on March 16, Sean Chen and Arthur Migliazza will each be featured in a full-length concert of virtuosic piano pieces. Come for brilliant original transcriptions and compositions plus beloved favorites from a variety of genres.
