Liberace to Perform to Benefit Piano Fund at the Holland Theatre
The Holland Theatre is excited to announce two new pianos in the theatre. A 7 foot Yamaha grand and a Baldwin studio piano. Both are tremendous additions to the theatre. In order to pay for these outstanding instruments a “Piano Fund” has been started at the Holland. And who better to help raise funding than...LIBERACE!!!
Yes, Liberace, performed by Dean Altstaetter, will be appearing at 7:30pm on June 7 and 8. He will be presenting a one man performance of “Meet the Man Behind the Grand “ by Brent Hazelton, a moving and highly-entertaining tribute to the performer and musician famous for his charm, glitz, and glamour. On a set reminiscent of his celebrated television program of the 1950s, Liberace relives the high (and low) points of his prolific life, leading the audience through his childhood and into the life changing moments of his career; introducing the person beyond the persona of an acclaimed performer in American history. Interwoven with a rollicking piano score spanning classical and popular music from Chopin to Chopsticks, Rachmaninoff to Ragtime, and everything in between, this solo-performer tour de force will leave you cheering the life of a uniquely American icon.
Dean Altstaetter is a staff member at Ohio Northern University and a versatile performer and accomplished pianist. The evening will also begin with pre-show music performed by Tom Boone, Chuck Croutwater, and Linda MacGilivray. The entire evening will spotlight the newly acquired pianos.
