What is 'Have Piano Will Duel'?

 

Have Piano will Duel is a program that celebrates the talents of incredible youths in and around Indian River county. The purpose of the workshop is to educate students on the fundamentals of formulating a professional quality ensemble and maximizing an aesthetic experience with limited rehearsal time together. Select students first attend an intensive jazz workshop in the morning led by Music Director Dr. Jacob Craig. After the workshop, the students join Dr. Craig for a live production that is open to the public.

The Concert 

 

"Have Piano Will Duel" featured its first workshop and concert in June of 2018 and has continued the event each year. Our 2020 show, held in December due to COVID, was entitled "A Jazzin' Christmas," as we performed holiday standards and infused them with a hint of jazz. The Christmas show's response was so exceptional we plan to add it as a 2nd production each year. The most recent production was our Autumn Jazz Concert on September 18th. You can read more about it on its tab. Each year, our shows have enjoyed a capacity audience.
