The “Caligari” Piano Performance Series
The Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft presents a series of concerts performed on the Wendell Castle “Caligari” piano that is currently on view as part of the exhibition Wendell Castle: Forms within Forms. Sponsored in part by Gist Piano Center, the concert series will feature local and national musicians playing on this unique instrument. Exhibition curator Joey Yates states, “The performances are a vital part of this exhibition. These musicians were selected not only for their diversity in approaches to musical styles and composition, but also for their ability to match the expert craftsmanship of Wendell Castle. It is a rare opportunity to have the piano on display and it’s a great way to bring multiple audiences into the museum during the run of the exhibition.”
