SEPT. 18 I GIST PIANO CENTER I EVENT
Gist Hosts 'Happiest Recital on Earth'
Gist Piano Center in Louisville, Ky., recently hosted more than 40 music students for “The Happiest Recital on Earth!”, a celebration of music from Disney films. Students performed their favorite Disney tunes while dressed as their favorite Disney characters.
“‘The Happiest Recital on Earth’ is a chance for students to share and explore the music that drove many of them to learn an instrument in the first place,” said Heather Hamilton, director of education for Gist Piano Center. “Revisiting these magical memories is a great way to remind all of us why we love making music and sharing it with our families. It’s a great way to keep kids on the piano all summer long.”
After their performance, each student took a keepsake photo in “Mickey’s Magic Photo Booth,” a green-screen environment designed to superimpose their photos onto their favorite Disney backgrounds.
