PianoClass in Concert

A PianoClass Special Activity – created to our student and available to our audience.

PianoClass in Concert – Criação Musical

Saturday, 12 December de 2020

This concert presents original works composed by the students Jaime Chiganças and Marcelo Arenas, plus one composition from their professor Bruno Angelo. We are celebrating a two-year student-teacher relationship cycle, which naturally has evolved with new facets like musician-musician or simply friends and the creative work shared by these composers. All the pieces presented were developed during the composition lessons and show a wide range of musical procedures and styles, which the composers value and consider fundamental and vital to the sound imaginary. All these experiences will have space in this event as the participants decided to interchange the music performances with an enrichment chat, as commentaries, testimonials, interpretations, and laughs are also part of the universe around the music creation.
