April 1st’s Piano Showcase at the Tower Theatre features concert pianist Sean Chen, a genius at displaying the virtuosity and versatility of the grand instrument. An award-winning classical pianist (Cliburn International Piano Competition, American Pianists Awards), Chen is also in demand for creative collaborations and commissions. His exceptional transcriptions for the piano range from Beethoven’s 9th Symphony to video game music and everything in between. Chen’s musical flexibility is a perfect fit for Sunriver Music Festival’s annual Piano Showcase emphasis on the uniqueness of blending genres. Given his natural inclination for teaching and approachable personality, Mr. Chen is particularly in demand for appearances that combine performances with masterclasses and artist conversations throughout the country. Saturday, April 1 at the Tower Theatre will highlight Chen’s multifaceted expertise: ●        At 3:00 p.m., all ticket holders are invited right up onto the Tower stage for the Masterclass & Musical Conversations session. You don’t have to be a pianist to enjoy a masterclass; you just have to enjoy music! A masterclass is a great opportunity to be a “fly on the wall” as an advanced young pianist performs and receives spontaneous feedback from our master, Sean Chen. ●        7:30 p.m. is the concert featuring Sean Chen. This full-length solo performance will include virtuosic piano pieces including some of Chen’s brilliant original transcriptions and compositions. Tickets at sunrivermusic.org
