Photos: New York Pianists Play For The New York Pops Educational Programs

The silent auction item at The New York Pops annual gala/concert held at Carnegie Hall and the Mandarin Hotel in April, offered a pianist to play at your private party complete with catering by Trattoria del Arte. The Pops Concert and Gala's proceeds help finance The Pops/Ed Programs. For the third year, the winning bidder got much more than she bargained for. Not only did the advertised pianist (Stephen Sorokoff) appear, but also a slew of New York's must celebrated keyboard artists and entertainers joined the festivities.

Absent this year was Maestro Steven Reineke who usually shares the piano duties at the party. He had a prior conducting engagement, but an apartment filled with the friends of auction winner Sunny Sessa were there. The silent auction item became anything but silent as the the talented guests joined the musical celebration for The Pops/Ed Programs.

This year's piano auction item will also take place in Palm Beach. Dick Robinson and Legends Radio had the winning bid for the Florida version.
