An Evening of Contemporary Piano with Jason Farnham
Seward Arts Council proudly announces its concert event scheduled for August 14th when Jason Farnham performs his signature piano show, “An Evening of Contemporary Piano,” at 6 PM in the Rae Building (Seward Marine Center). Admission is free to children 0-12, $5 for students and seniors and $10 for adults.
Jason Farnham of San Francisco Bay, CA is truly the “International Entertainer of Contemporary Piano Music.” 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. The newest addition to his piano show has become his staple track: Fur Elise with a techno-rock beat: “Fur Crying Out Loud Elise, Let’s Dance!” Similarly, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Rondo Alla Turca has now become “Rondo Alla Techno”. Fans of Mannheim Steamroller and rich piano instrumentals will find much to love here. Jason Farnham is a first-class entertainer, and his show is sure to leave the audience smiling.
Kathy Parsons of MainlyPiano.com says, “Think Schroeder from Peanuts meets George Winston meets Victor Borge meets a guy who makes techno remixes out of classical tunes.”
