Roomful of Pianos
Roomful of Pianos Reimagined at The 2024 NAMM Show
Pianists! The NAMM Foundation enthusiastically welcomes you to the highly anticipated Roomful of Pianos event at The 2024 NAMM Show! While traditionally a performance, this year's annual multi-piano extravaganza reimagines itself as a community music-making experience, inviting intermediate and advanced pianists to come together and create something truly unique!
Three Captivating Programs at The NAMM Show
We have three captivating programs in store for you at The 2024 NAMM Show.
On Friday, January 26, we'll embark on a soul-stirring musical journey with gospel maestros leading the participants through renditions of "Amazing Grace" and other gospel classics.
Saturday marks a historic celebration as we honor the 100th anniversary of George Gershwin's timeless masterpiece, "Rhapsody in Blue." Experience the magic of this iconic composition through a special arrangement designed for multiple pianos, promising an unforgettable multi-piano experience for performers and spectators alike.
Both days will conclude with a sensational jam session, inviting all pianists to join in the fun as we perform Billy Joel's iconic hit, "Piano Man." Open to all!
