Come early and stay late for Whidbey Island Center for the Arts’ second annual PianoFest Northwest!

The Piano Bar pre-show lounge will open at 6 p. m. every evening of the festival for beverages and musical stylings of local musicians and students. The Piano Bar will also open for a post-show “meet & greet” for patrons to mix and mingle with the artists of the evening!

PianoFest NW 2014 runs Wednesday, April 16 through Saturday, April 19 and features a Locals Night as well as Classical, World Music, and Jazz Nights. Respectively, the headliners are local Northwest favorite Nancy Nolan, spectacular female trio Thirty Fingers, three-time Latin Grammy Award-winner Jovino Santos Neto, and, performing on Whidbey Island for the first time in years, native piano virtuoso Aaron Parks.

Ticket prices are: Locals Night—$15, Classical Night—$20, World Music Night—$25, Jazz Night—$25. A Festival Pass is $75. Please contact the box office directly to purchase a festival pass.
