Tanya Bannister and Pianists for New Orleans

Since I live in New Orleans, I would be remiss not to mention a way for Classical Music lovers to hear awesome musicians and help New Orleans get back on its feet at the same time. I came across this on Tanya Bannister's website. She is the winner of the 2005 New Orleans International Piano Competition.

Tanya, along with James Giles, Robert Henry and Petronel Malan, are touring the country with the Pianists for New Orleans tour. The series of concerts are supposed to raise $100,000 to benefit the Musical Arts Society of New Orleans. This is the organization that supports great Classical Music in New Orleans as well as the New Orleans International Piano Competition. So be sure to check the schedule for a concert near you and help New Orleans!

Also check out the Audio section on Tanya's website for some great performances including a full performace of Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini. While you're listening be sure to read my previous post on Rachmaninoff's Works for Piano and Orchestra
