Posted on: January 9, 2018


Tempe events include A Piano Triptych, presented by Lake Lakeshore Music  at Tempe Center for the Arts on January 13.  The program features three renowned pianists, Nicole Pesce, Stephanie Trick and Paolo Alderighi, performing an evening on Broadway with two concert grand pianos.

Pianist, keyboardist, composer and arranger Nicole Pesce entertains audiences with her unique blend of virtuosity, humor and pizzazz. With a repertoire consisting of over 12,000 memorized songs, Nicole is often dubbed “the human iPod” and is recognized as one of the “top ten musicians to hear in Phoenix” by the Arizona Republic. She has appeared on Phoenix’s prime time news, television and radio stations as well as in magazines and newspaper article.

Stephanie Trick (Harlem stride piano virtuoso) and Paolo Alderighi met at a piano festival in Boswil near Zürich, Switzerland in 2008 and started to collaborate on a four-hands piano project dedicated to classic jazz, preparing arrangements of songs from the swing era, as well as drawing from the ragtime and blues repertoire. They have performed at national and international festivals and concerts.

This premiere performance on January 13 at the Tempe Center for the Arts is a benefit for the Sandra Day O’Connor Institute Scholarship Fund at Arizona State University. To purchase tickets, visit the Tempe Center for the Arts website.
