Monster Concert 2011

A Grand Piano Extravaganza

TMTA's Monster Concert 2011 was held on Thursday, June 9, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. at the Long Center for the Performing Arts.

The Monster Concert is a non-competitive event for piano students from age 9 through High School. Ten pianos are on stage and duets and trios are played simultaneously by 200 or more fingers.

The Monster Concert encourages active participation in music practice and performance. These 200 plus students and their families spend months in learning and preparation for the concert including numerous rehearsals. They also get to experience the excitement of performing in a full-length program in a big concert hall.

The Monster Conert is for students of TMTA members only.
