Local Piano Designer's Work On Display at UT Concert Series
Three upcoming concerts at the University of Tampa will feature Assistant Professor of Music and International Concert Pianist, Grigorios Zamparas who will play on stunning piano designs that were conceived and handcrafted by a local piano designer.
As a part of the UT Concert Artist Series, Grigorios will perform:
- As a soloist at 2 p.m. on Sunday, November 4: The program features the Busoni transcription of the Bach “Prelude,” “Adagio and Fugue in C” and the “Preludes for Piano” of Frederick Chopin.
- Accompanying The Graffe String Quartet at 2 p.m. on Sunday, February 17
- As part of a program entitled, “The Music of Cesar Franck” at 2 p.m. on Sunday, April 7
For each of his scheduled performances, Grigorios will be performing on a one-of-a-kind piano with legs that are a work of art and have been engineered to provide a distinguishable improvement to the instrument’s sound, created by local Piano Designer and ResInno Co-Founder Justin Elliott
The reaction Justin has received from Grigorios and others who have played on (or heard) a piano fitted with these modifications is that his work could be the greatest improvement to the instrument in the past 100 years.
