Piano Celebration, hosted by Piano for a Richer Life, is looking for piano players of all levels to perform!  Last year over 400 talented local celebrities, student pianists and piano enthusiasts of all ages performed at Northpark Mall in Davenport with a dual purpose: to raise funds to support Ronald McDonald House and get the message out that piano study equals brain development!

Iowa City Ronald McDonald House serves the families of thousands of children suffering from critical conditions.  The House receives no state or federal tax dollars, relying 100% on private gifts.

Numerous University studies prove that piano study leads to increased brain development, academic achievement and builds confidence while keeping you happy and healthy.  “Piano Celebration helps to get the important message out – while raising substantial dollars for Ronald McDonald House in Iowa City,” quotes Jim Foster, the spokesman for Piano for a Richer Life.

The event will take place on Saturday, April 21st 10am-5pm and Sunday, April 22nd noon-5pm at Northpark Mall in Davenport, Iowa. Three conservatory grand pianos will be placed outside of Dillard’s, Younkers and JC Penny’s stores.

Contact Lynn Kroeger at 563-285-8421 to schedule a performance time or to give a financial contribution. Donations can also be made during the performances at any of the three concert locations.

Over the past 9 years Piano Celebration has raised over $248,000 for Iowa City’s Ronald McDonald House, and this year the goal is $35,000.  Admission is free and the public is welcome!
