Piano Stories with Penny, the latest creation from Canadian pianist, Dr. Penny Johnson, treats audiences to an hour of humorous and poignant stories from the great pianists of the past. Following on the heels of her previous in-person shows, The Great Pianists: Stories, Music & More and New Adventures in Piano Listening, the new online program draws upon unique material from a variety of historic piano texts, memoirs, interviews and articles. Accompanied by pictures, the program offers a friendly and engaging glimpse behind the scenes of such figures as Franz Liszt, Benno Moiseiwitsch, Artur Rubinstein, Constance Keene and even the pet dog of Richard Wagner! This program is suitable for piano-enthusiasts of all ages and is available for booking with public libraries and private studios.
Piano Stories with Penny debuts online with the Niagara Falls Public Library at 7pm on Wednesday, October 13, 2021. Please see the "Schedule" tab to the left for registration details to this free event.
