What we're about

We are a friendly group for adult hobbyist piano (and/or keyboard) players! All styles of music and skill levels are welcome. We get together about once per month at various members' homes to enjoy food and drink, as well as play music for each other. Playing a variety of pianos at our event hosts' homes and experiencing every member's different musical tastes often provokes some interesting conversations as well!

May Piano Meetup!

Dave's Place

Dave Carter will host our May 2022 Meetup. We'll get together at 2PM on Saturday, May 21 to share music with each other again!

Denver Area Piano Special Event -

1332 S Broadway

Dave Carter and Polly Idol will be hosting our June Piano MeetUp at the Classic Pianos Recital Hall on south Broadway in Denver. The hall can accommodate more members and guests than our regular monthly events hosted by members in their homes.

This private performance space located on the ground floor of Classic Pianos has a large capacity of up to 75, though still intimate enough for our smaller groups of 20 to 25. It also offers two grand pianos, the principal instrument being a large Yamaha grand. A second grand can be brought in for two piano works and concertos. It also includes room at the rear to serve refreshments.

This will be the first of two events at Classic Pianos this year, the other in September. The hall will open at 1:30PM, but if you come earlier, you can browse the showroom upstairs. Classic Pianos is the principle seller of new Yamaha, Bosendorfer, Schimmel and Estonia pianos, but sells a wide variety of rebuilt/reconditioned pianos including Steinway and Baldwin.
