Piano Fondue, Dueling Pianos is a fully-interactive, high-energy, all-request show that will have audience members singing, clapping, dancing, and rocking. The performance will be competitively crowdsourced and run through a website versus an app. The entire set list will be projected for the audience to view, and it will update in real-time as new songs are added and the old ones change positions. Audience members will battle for the next song, cheering on their favorites and singing along to the classics that always seem to make it to the top – all while Piano Fondue entertainers lead the current song from stage.
A free pre-show reception will be held from 6 to 7:15 p.m. in the Bisignano Art Gallery in conjunction with “The Wendt: Relentless Integrity and Social Media.” The exhibit will be open Friday, March 20, through Saturday, April 18.
Tickets for Piano Fondue, Dueling Pianos can be purchased from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at the Farber Box Office, Heritage Center, University of Dubuque, 2255 Bennett Street; by phone at 563.585.SHOW; or online at www.dbq.edu/heritagecenter.
