I would be interested!!! Not so much for the recital aspect, although I could be one to prove that this is the "beginners" forum!! laugh


When I reach the place I'm going, I will surely know my way.

Perhaps if we wait till there is a space station with a "Concert Grand" on it, we can all go there.

Then we would all have to travel equal distance.

And no-one else could hear our mistakes.

Sorry, my mistakes.

I love the two-locations-big-screen-uplink idea ... has anyone seen "Last night of the Proms" in recent years? Since there is so much interest that Royal Albert Hall is no longer big enough, they have four concerts taking place simultaneously all over Britain, video conference style.
We could chose a weekend and have four recital sessions (two live in the US, two in Europe), each broadcast to the other location ...

S-H:

Let's decide on location first. If we choose SF, I am game to be on "organizing committee." (if elsewhere in the West, I am game too, but my involvement will be less) It will certainly take some monetary resources (like renting appropriate venue, for example), however, so that will have to be resolved too. (now, any ideas on how to earn some cash to pay for these?) In any case, I suggest that if we decide to do it, we start planning way in advance, like 12-18 months.

I, too, am willing to help on a committee if we choose the West Coast (especially if it's Southern California). I cannot commit the time to chair such a committee, nor can I do more than assist -- but I am willing to do that.

Perhaps we could have this occur at the same time as one of the Chopin recitals?

Well I'd be happy to offer to host the event here in Arizona. I do have a new M&H 7 ft "BB" semi-concert grand and plenty of room however, a *real* concert hall type setting would be really neat.

If we are to do this, I say go all out. Formal evening wear, nice venue and we could rent a 7 or even 9 ft concert grand to perform on.

Possibly hire a videographer to film the entire event.

Refreshments and schrimp cocktail!.

What a great idea!

I took a few minutes to add up the latitudes and longitudes of the 37 known recitals locations in the USA. Then I divided the result by 37.

It turns out that the geographic center of this group is approximately in Safe, Missouri - about 85 miles south west of St. Louis.

I checked it out on Google Earth, there doesn’t seem to be much there. I think it would be better at S-H’s house. I wish I could attend, but that is unlikely.

Copper:

It may be time for one of your famous survey's. Maybe a poll to see who would go, who won't and who's undecided. But then again, like Yuri said, a location must be chosen first.

How about a location poll first. Possibly take the suggested location (minus the aelution islands) as well as a write in category.

Agreed, as location may be the top influence for who may be able to swing it or not.

That's one of them. Along with pecan pie, Lady Baltimore Cake, red rice, she crab soup, bbq and cornbread dressing, not to mention hoppin' john, collards, shrimp & grits, and Frogmore stew - - -

(Frogmore is a town - no frogs were harmed in the making of this stew)

Not just location, but general interest. And how far people are willing (or able) to travel. Maybe we should create an official "poll" somewhere so the results are easier to tally.

About the concert hall: the city where I live has a music school that has its own concert hall that is for rent. It seats about 250 people and comes with a grand piano (and a bar!). A venue like that would be ideal for our purposes.

We might also consider colleges and universities that have recital halls -- those can often be rented and usually have access to concert grand pianos.
