MDPGroupShot-eblast.jpgThe Dueling Pianos Party is coming to town!

The MSU Foundation will be hosting an exciting event on Saturday evening, Jan. 27. Just in time to help chase away the winter blues and cabin fever, the Midwest Dueling Pianos Party will be on campus! There will be a social from 6 to 7 p.m. that evening, featuring an hors d'oeuvres buffet and cash bar. The entertainment will begin at 7 p.m. and continue until 10 p.m. The event will be held in the MSU Campus Center Luckasen Room, and is being held as a fundraiser for the MSU Foundation annual fund. We are grateful to the event sponsors for their generosity in making this event possible.

What is this?

The Midwest Dueling Pianos program is sure to bring a level of fun to Mayville State that those who attend will never forget. This has quickly become one of the most sought-after dueling piano production companies in the country. You may have seen the widely popular dueling pianos concept performed when you've been out of the area, but now that level of excitement, hilarity, musicianship, and raw fun will be happening right here in Mayville! The interactive musical comedy experience will have you singing, shouting, dancing, and laughing.

How does it work?

The Midwest Dueling Pianos' young, energetic, and exciting entertainers will perform an all-request-driven show with music ranging from the songs of today to as far back as your memories can take you. Audience members will provide the direction of the show to the performers by writing their favorite songs on request slips that they bring up to the two pianos, which will be front and center.

The multi-talented dueling pianos entertainers will then perform the requested songs, while urging the audience to participate. To further the crowd interaction, some audience members may be asked to volunteer to go onto the stage to perform a song, dance, and/or skit that will probably bring the house down. Don’t worry! If you’re not into audience participation, you’ll be perfectly comfortable just sitting back and enjoying the show.
