Inauguration concert of the restored Baldwin piano

A few years ago, the Cooperative found a superb Baldwin Artist Series piano. The instrument received a makeover this spring. Pianovember is therefore the perfect opportunity to invite you to a concert where young talented students - the winners of the Les Étoiles competition from the three previous editions, and some of our artist-pedagogues will make this beautiful instrument resonate! Works by Ángel, Barber, Denis, Gershwin, Kuhlau, Rachmaninoff and Prokofiev.
