AmiciMusic is a chamber music organization based in Asheville, NC and Baltimore, MD, dedicated to performing the highest quality chamber music in intimate venues and non-traditional spaces. We are committed to breaking down barriers between performers and audiences by setting up a more relaxed and informal atmosphere at concerts and through informative talks about each composer’s life before each piece is played.
Fun arrangements of holiday classics, including the Nutcracker Suite, the Blue Danube Waltz, Jingle Bells, Joy to the World, Sleigh Bells, and more
December 19, 2019
Listen here to Muphen Whitney’s Podcast about this fun show:
We usher in the holiday season with a reprise of this very fun, family-friendly program of four-hand piano arrangements of some of the best-loved holiday classics highlighted by a virtuosic version of Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker Suite” that is a true high-wire choreographed ballet of twenty fingers competing on a single piano. We will also perform Leroy Anderson’s “Sleigh Bells” and jazzy arrangements of some popular Carols and Christmas nuggets. This is a great way to get the holiday season started with a little mulled wine and maybe even a warm fire.
I don’t have any video from the show that Daniel and I did last year, but here is a video with another pianist of the Dance of the Reed Flutes from the Nutcracker with a big screen behind us to show keyboard. It might take a minute to download.
Join us for another wonderful House Concert at our home at 208 Northway in Guilford. Seating is limited and by reservation only. Includes light food and drinks. This is a child friendly show with very fun, accessible music and they can watch it all on the big monitor that shows the keyboard up close. Children are only $10 and we would have love to have a few in the audience! Purchase below by clicking on the yellow “Add to Cart” button. Click on the arrow next to the price to get the children’s price. You can add multiple seats on the next screen. All major credit cards are accepted and you do not need to have a PayPal account.
