About Soundboard:
The soundboard of a piano is that all-important element that amplifies, mellows, and projects the music we all love. It’s the soul of the piano. From sonata to invention to concerti – even boogie-woogie – the soundboard gives us the music and the life we all crave right now.

So, we’ve given the name THE SOUNDBOARD to our project to bring you special programming in this curious time when we can’t be together for live concerts. We plan to…

  • Amplify – by expanding your acquaintance with the rising generation of exceptional young pianists through our ongoing Rising Stars series, now all-digital

  • Mellow – by giving you all our programs live in initial broadcast, but then available for weeks after, so you can listen in your own mellow time

  • Project – by offering you a whole bundled set of recitals, piano history classes, piano news from around the world, and even a concerto competition all for just $100!

Subscribe today! We think that you won’t want to miss a moment.
