The Nook on Robinson (Facebook | Website) has made a name for itself by hosting out-of-the-box events like a series of pajama synth parties, screenings of the trashiest movies in cinema history, or even a night where people were invited to scream at the sky. So, it shouldn’t be a surprise that they’ve come up with yet another humdinger to add to your calendar.
“The 2-Piano Project” will be an immersive music performance and benefit hosted on Friday, September 24 at 8 p.m. The audience will sit between two recently restored pianos while artists perform a variety of compositions from jazz to cabaret.
After the event, the pianos will be donated to local schools or community groups to support and further local music education, according to event co-organizer Mary McWin – though those organizations hadn’t been named at the time of this post.
The event, which is free to attend (donations are encouraged), is being led by self-taught Texas-based composer, Nathan Felix, who hosted a “6-Piano Project” in North Austin, Texas in 2015 before taking the project on the road to San Antonio, Barcelona, Houston, and now Orlando.
The Nook is located at 2432 E. Robinson Street [GMap] in The Milk District.
Thanks for the love! Update: We found a home for one of the pianos and it will go to the OCPS Academic Center for Excellence in the Parramore community in Orlando.
