"Old Friends" & Holiday Potluck
December 20, 2015 at 2PM
Did you know that our Magnificent Morton has electronically captured every note, registration and expression as our many visiting artists have performed for us over the years? It's an electronic version of a player piano roll, more or less. We will use this technology to recreate some of our previous artists' best pieces at our annual Holiday Potluck Member Meeting. Come on down, bring some food to share and re-live some of our most memorable performances. We will open the console to KCTPO members after the potluck dinner, so if you would like to take a turn on the bench, make sure your membership is paid up!
