Piano Celebration is a local charity event that takes place every third weekend in April, in the Quad Cities of Iowa and Illinois, at Northpark Mall in Davenport. The event features celebrity pianists, high-achieving student pianists, piano teacher studios, living room performers, musicians and vocalists. Piano students and participants raise money and then showcase their piano talent while spreading the word that Piano Study = Brain Development. The money raised by the students and the donations raised the day of the event go to the Ronald McDonald House of Iowa City.
Last year over 400 students and guest pianists in the Quad Cities entertained the crowds, raising over $34,000 for the Ronald McDonald House of Iowa City. Since its conception, Piano Celebration has raised over $285,000 for the house! Media sponsors donate over $20,000 each year in advertising to promote our fundraising and piano study messages.
Piano Celebration was founded by a local organization called Piano For A Richer Life. The goal of Piano For A Richer Life is to increase an awareness, recognition, and support for the study of piano for people of all walks of life. They assist organizations and individuals who teach, support, and provide music education in their schools and communities. Piano For A Richer Life includes educators, parents, students, piano technicians, and local business and community leaders.
