Dance Palace Piano Concert Series: Jason Farnham

$22 general, $20 seniors, $11 teens & kids plus

An afternoon of contemporary piano with Jason Farnham has delighted audiences around the US again and again. Fans have affectionately dubbed him “Schroeder” from Peanuts because of his toy piano, his witty Victor Borge-style piano/comedy antics, and the clever way he interacts with the audience. Music includes contemporary romantic piano, jazz, bossa nova, blues, stride piano, and classical with a modern twist! Jason is always looking for an interesting spin on the status quo, a way to take a classic and turn it on its ear, soooo... the newest addition to his piano show is “Fur Elise” with a techno-rock-dance beat: “Fur Crying Out Loud Elise, Let’s Dance!” And Mozart’s “Rondo Alla Turca” has now become “Rondo Alla Techno”. He’s also re-envisioned “Autumn Leaves” into a fusion of bossa nova and samba styles. Playing the piano while lying upside down Amadeus-style? Check. And always included in the lineup are a handful of the signature original piano pieces Jason’s fans adore, like his 2008 original instrumental hit, “Lisa’s Song.”
