Everyone’s favorite interactive music experience is back this summer.
Dueling pianos, Retro ‘70s, ‘80s & ‘90s dance party and live music with Sheena Brook promises a fun time for all at the Sidney and Berne Davis Art Center.
The Sounds Of Summer series begins on June 18 with the ever popular Dueling Pianos, an interactive music experience where the audience picks the setlist. Dueling Pianos will feature two grand pianos placed back to back in the center of SBDAC’s Grand Atrium with an audience seated in the round. Featured pianists Sarah Hadeka and David Rode will take audience suggestions for the next song in their setlist.
However, it’s up to the piano players what songs will be featured. Audience members are encouraged to have fun and sing along. Also that evening, the winner of the People’s Choice Award from the Recaptured juried exhibition will be announced. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the performance is at 7:30 p.m.
To continue the series, a Retro ‘70s, ‘80s & ‘90s dance party will be held hosted by 105.5 DJ Selecta AJ on Friday, July 16. It’s been awhile since people have had the chance to get out and dance, now is the time. Dressing up in your favorite decade attire is strongly encouraged. Doors open at 8:30 p.m., and the music goes from 9 p.m. to midnight.
