Internationally Acclaimed Pianist Awadagin Pratt

Although not particularly guitar-related, I’m pleased to announce that internationally acclaimed concert pianist Awadagin Pratt will be performing in concert at Suitland High School on Saturday, November 13 at 7:00 pm.

In a news report on NBC Channel 4 this morning, Suitland HS indicated that they are pleased to have a musician of this caliber perform and speak to their students to demonstrate not only the power of music education, but the broad depth and variety of music careers available to them.

The event is open to the public and admission is $25 for adults and $10 for students. All proceeds from the concert will benefit the Visual and Performing Arts program in efforts to make the Suitland an All Steinway School.

Mr. Pratt will also be teaching a Master Class on Sunday,  November 14, 2010 at 1:00-3:00 pm to students at the Steinway location in Tysons Corner.

Everyone at Magnolia Guitar Lessons & Repairs (i.e., me, myself & I) support all music education programs and cultural events that aim to encourage young people, and the communities in which they live, to embrace music and the arts.
