CLASSICAL | Celebration of the Piano 

Let's see. If it's two hands, that's 10 fingers. That's 8.8 keys per finger. That's...that's too many unplayed notes! The work-around is to add more pianists, and that's exactly what the piano faculty at the Hochstein School of Music & Dance will do in its 2nd Annual Celebration of the Piano. Performing music for two to 16 hands will be pianists Paula Bobb, Wenginq Bouché-Pillon, Yi-Wen Chang, Richard Delaney, Vanessa Fadial, Doleen Hood, Willie LaFavor, Gary Palmer, Lourdes Santiesteban-Mora, and Olexsandra Yurchenko. Composers on the program include Schumann, Schubert, Sousa, Lecuona, Cervantes, Lavignac, and Milhaud. Not to be missed, the Mozart Piano Concerto in A Major, K. 414. Don't let the formality of the title put you off — as arranged by Hochstein's Tom Acquaviva, it's written for solo toy piano with eight supporting pianists.

The event takes place Thursday, May 23, 7 p.m. at the Hochstein School of Music & Dance, 50 N. Plymouth Ave. $5 individual/$10 family., 454-4596.
