I live in Texas. Dallas, Austin, Houston, and San Antonio are all within driving distance. I have difficulty finding a resource that lists when pianists will come and perform at these venues.

I try to look up all of my favorite pianists, but they perform mostly in Europe.

I also look up the major orchestras in these nearby cities, which is helpful for concerto performances, but not useful for solo recitals.

Anyway, is there a website or a listserv or a forum for Texas piano junkies?

*sigh* Salt Lake City
The music department and colleges and universities nearby might be a source of information.

As Malkin said, the University music department websites are the best source I've found. I attend SMU student recitals, and, the Dallas International Piano Competition at Meadows Auditorium on campus. The University of North Texas (at Denton) takes considerable pride in their music department, and probably hold student recitals, as well. I've also attended the student recitals at Univ Texas at Dallas, in North Dallas near Coit and the George Bush turnpike.

As for professional level performers coming here, the only notice I've seen has been from the Dallas Symphony Orchestra website. You may find links to it from the SMU music dept website, as, they seem to collaborate with some regularity.

There is also a free music series, frequently featuring solo piano artists, at the Dallas Public Library. It is sponsored by some greek denominated fraternity or sorority. The performances are on Sundays at 3pm in the fall and spring. I haven't made one of those yet, though there is a piano solo performance on the third sunday of this month (I think).

I have not yet found a single site where all events are compiled into one list.

Also, in the Dallas area there are a couple of Steinway dealers known as "Steinway Hall". The one in Plano regularly hosts piano solo concerts, featuring professional pianists. They have their own website.
