Piano Tour to France Kickoff

The Piano Department is going on a Concert Tour to France!

“In the Path of Chopin”

Piano Students

Welcome NEC Community to the Piano Tour Blog.  Check in here to follow our adventures while we are abroad in Paris, Tours and Nohant.  We are very excited for our departure today from Boston to Paris.  Suitcases are being packed, students are polishing their repertoire, and the administration is making final preparations here in the office.  We will be posting stories, pictures and more items here on this blog while we are in France as well as when we return to the United States.   

Our students will be touring around France “In the Path of Chopin.”  We will be visiting many significant sites in correlation to Chopin’s life and musical journey.  Including the Paris Conservatory, the Polish Library, and La Madeleine Church, just to name a few.  They will perform in Paris at Église Saint Julien le Pauvre, as well as in the Auditorium Frédéric Chopin in Nohant, at the Nohant Festival.  Both concerts will be a memorable experience for these talented students. We will also have the extreme pleasure of partaking in a Masterclass with esteemed pianist, Adam Wibrowski, at the Polish Library in Paris. 

Pleyel Piano

The picture above is a sketch of Chopin’s 1839 Pleyel Piano by the talented Hawaiian artist Kimble Mead.  This sketch was done by Kimble specifically for our tour t-shirt.  Our gratitude goes to Sandy Davis for coordinating with Kimble Mead to have this piece of artwork created for our tour.

Please stay tuned…..
