Our family takes the virus very seriously as we have two high risk employees with pre-existing conditions (Michael being one). For the safety of our family and yours, we are enforcing the following rules for all guests
No more than 20 people in the hall at a time (this includes musicians, guests and sound crew).
Chairs will be spread out to enforce social distancing in groups of 2 and are not allowed to be moved.
Everyone must wear a mask the entire time while in the store and one can only remove their mask while on the stage alone.
No practicing on the stores pianos before or after the recital
No wandering the store before, after or during the recital. We are on an appointment only schedule right now so if you guests would like to try out a piano, they can make an appointment by clicking here or on the top of any page on our website.
Every event will be live streamed on Facebook or Youtube. By walking into the concert hall, you and all your guests agree to be a part of a live stream experience.
LIVE STREAMING ALL RECITALS
We have spent the covid months upgrading our hall with a complete live stream set up! We have multiple cameras, earthworks microphones (the top of the line) and a top of the line live streaming rig. This means, grandma in Illinois can watch her grandsons performance from the comfort of her home! The audio quality and video quality is absolutely amazing!
We will be live streaming every recital right on our website so you can share the link with your entire student base and their families. Anyone who enters the hall is agreeing to be in a live stream. We will not be able to make any exceptions to this (tuning it off or on for certain musicians) and we will be live streaming every recital. In other words, if you don't want your recital live online, do not book a recital here!
