This Sunday is the annual piano marathon at the Crestmont Conservatory of Music in San Mateo. For the low price of $20, you can hear 19 different pianists perform a variety of musical works from Bach to Mozart to Rachmaninoff and much more. Interspersed during the day are two-piano sets and several piano concertos as well.
The event starts at noon and continues through 8pm. Your ticket lets you come and go during the day as you wish. My good friend Paul Hsieh kicks off the day with Bach, Debussy and Grieg, and I’ll be following at 12:15 with Chopin and concertos by Bach and Mozart.
More information or just come by the Conservatory at 2575 Flores Street in San Mateo.
