About The Piano Cottage Rocks summer concert series
The Piano Cottage Rocks Concert (TPCR) is a two-night rock concert series held at the historic Wealthy Street Theatre in Grand Rapids Michigan.
Celebrating our 9th concert season, TPCR9 will be held July 30 and 31, 2020 at 7:30pm.
The original concept for this dynamic musical celebration stems from collaboration with students looking for opportunities to perform contemporary music. The concert series represents a full year of preparation among students, faculty and directors at The Piano Cottage. The events have gained such popularity in West Michigan that tickets sell out quickly.
Behind all the glitz, glamour and excitement of appearing in a world-class, musical production, a cast of 75 young musicians learn valuable life and performance skills; from the audition process, to collaboration among peers, choral groups, musicians, and choreographers, all under the direction of an outstanding team of West Michigan professionals.
Students also get a glimpse into the backstage world of music production from sound & lighting professionals.
Beyond performing in the event, there are also stage crew opportunities for students to assist with props, sound, lighting, choreography, coaching and fog engineering.
Auditions for headlining roles will be held May 2, 2020. Participants must be full-time, private music students of The Piano Cottage, between the ages of 8-17. Contact your instructor for more information. Additional details and online registration will be available in the coming weeks.
