Eisemann Center Reschedules Last Keyboard Conversations Concert To June 15, 2020
Keyboard Conversations, featuring concert pianist Jeffrey Siegel, concludes the 2019-2020 Season sponsored by Dr. John F. Dixon with Fasciatin' Rhythms! in the Bank of America Theatre at the Eisemann Center, 2351 Performance Drive in Richardson, Texas on Monday, June 15, 2020 at 7:30 pm (rescheduled from the original April 20 date). Jeffrey Siegel returns to the keyboard with a program that invites you to tap along to these rhythmic classical pieces during Keyboard Conversations. Enjoy the syncopated music of George Gershwin and Scott Joplin, the zesty polkas of Stravinsky and Shostakovich, and stirring marches of Prokofiev and John Philip Sousa. Other 2019-2020 Eisemann Center Presents events cancelled due to concerns related to COVID-19 include Comedian Tom Cotter (Mar. 13); The Choir of Man (Mar. 14); Steve Dorff (Mar. 20); and Dog Man: The Musical (Apr. 19).
In addition to his solo appearances, Jeffrey Siegel presents Keyboard Conversations, concerts with lively commentary in an innovative format that differs from traditional recitals and appearances with symphony orchestras. A Keyboard Conversation is a concert with each work on the program performed in its entirety. His brilliantly engaging concerts with commentary combine captivating remarks with world-class performances of masterpieces of the piano repertoire and conclude with a fast-paced Q-and-A session.
