Audition for Oakton's Six Piano Ensemble Sept. 10-11 and 16
Be part of a unique musical experience as a member of the Oakton Community College Six Piano Ensemble. Auditions for the internationally acclaimed group will be from 7-9 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 10, and Wednesday, Sept. 11, and Monday, Sept. 16, at the college's Des Plaines campus, 1600 E. Golf Road, Room 1360.
The ensemble performs classical, ragtime, jazz and contemporary music arranged for six pianos. Interested pianists may play a prepared piece, but music will be provided.
Founded by Glenna Sprague, Oakton professor and coordinator of music, the ensemble has appeared at prestigious venues around the world, from Scotland to Austria. Locally, the group has played at the Chicago Civic Opera House, The Harold Washington Library Series, The Steinway Piano Community Concert Series and Navy Pier. Critics hail the group as "extraordinary," "unique" and a "true musical experience performance."
"The ensemble provides an excellent opportunity for those pianists who do not want to perform as soloists but want to keep up their playing skills and be part of an ensemble situation," Sprague says.
Auditions may also be scheduled by appointment.
