Latin Music Recital
Do you love latin music? Please join us at our may recital which features music from Spain and Latin America. Hope to see you there! If you would like to play, please email [masked] with the name of your piece, the composer, and the length of the piece. Any piece is welcome, but priority will be given to those who wish to play a piece that is by a latin composer or a piece which features latin rhythms. Performers are asked to pay $20.00, which goes toward the cost of reserving recital venues. Payment can easily be made online through our Chip in feature by clicking here (https://secure.meetup.com/Amateur-Pianists-San-Diego/contribute/).

    What we're about

    AmateurPianists is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2011 by Glenn Kramer to provide performance opportunities for amateur pianists of all professions and backgrounds. Since its formation, membership has grown to make us the largest piano meetup group in the world. Performances are held at various venues—from recital halls and libraries, to churches and private homes. The group also provides educational opportunities, such as masterclasses and lectures on performance practice, the history of classical music, and much more, including the San Diego International Piano Competition for Outstanding Amateurs (http://amateurpianists.org/competition3) which took place from July 15–17, 2016. Classical music should be enjoyable and accessible to everyone, and AmateurPianists serves to facilitate this vision by connecting pianists with audiences.
