Support the 2017 Piano-a-thon

Featuring the students from the Studios of Carla Hively, Karen Campo, Lorrie Wenmoth, Marcia Soellner, Amy Sauriol, Lynette Flick, Sharon Shinko, Creative Canton Music/Sempre Piano School, Paula Oby, Meagan Longenecker, Brent Schloneger, Azee Keen, Janelle Phinney, Tana Kura, The Piano Studio, Karen Dhyanchand, Courtney Hall, Julie Kim and Elaine Thompson.

The Piano-a-thon is an exciting annual fundraising event with 100% of the proceeds benefitting Akron Children’s Hospital. All monies raised between now and June 30, 2017, will support the 2017 Piano-a-thon. The Piano-a-thon is held at Akron Children’s Hospital in the beautiful atrium lobby. The teachers assist the students in preparing their programs. Students of all ages participate and play from a few minutes to forty-five minutes or even longer. The length of the Piano-a-thon is determined by the number of students and the length of their programs. It is held in early June once students are out of school. This year’s event will be held June 1st, 2nd, 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th. Patients, doctors and hospital staff alike enjoy the melodies echoing throughout the hallways. Many will sit and enjoy the music, if they have a break.

Piano-a-thon is the primary fund raiser for the John C. & Elaine Thompson Endowment for Music Therapy. Your generosity helps support the Akron Children's Hospital Palliative Care Unit and Music Therapy Center. See more info!

Tremendous thanks to Steinway Piano Gallery Cleveland ! This is their seventh consecutive year of continued support, which includes a beautiful grand piano for this year's performances.
