Pianos have been synonymous with class, style, and flair since the 1700s. From its early roots in classical music to the use of piano in popular pop tracks, its broad range and universal popularity make it the perfect accompaniment to any event. Here at Champions, we have a wide selection of professional pianists to provide the perfect entertainment or atmosphere at corporate events, wedding receptions, cocktail parties, drinks receptions or any other occasion.
The piano is one of the most universally loved instruments in the world. With an 88-note range and almost 8 octaves, it has the ability to play any genre of music. The touch sensitivity of the keys also allows for a multitude of expressions making each performance one-of-a-kind. From classical pieces to film and theatre scores and everything in between, a pianist at your event can capture the tone, energy, and attention of your guests and create the perfect entertainment or ambience. A classical repertoire is a great choice for corporate events or erudite occasions.
Drawing on the works of Mozart, Bach, Schubert, Schumann, Liszt, Beethoven and many others, these pieces bring hundreds of years of musical heritage to life. Popular pieces like Beethoven’s ‘Moonlight Sonata’ and Chopin’s ‘Nocturne in E Flat’ are crowd pleasers while the discerning ear will enjoy the personal expression hidden within each rendition. Jazz music is another genre that lends itself to the piano with its influence on jazz greats being well-known. A lively genre that fills a space with both class and fun in equal measure, guests of a corporate dinner, product launch, or other event will enjoy the stylings of jazz greats like Duke Ellington, Keith Jarrett, Erroll Garner, and Harry Connick Jr.
One of the most popular requests for a piano is easy listening music. Floating beautiful, lilting notes around your venue, it is the ideal entertainment for events where you need the music to take a backseat. At wedding ceremonies, drinks receptions, and client dinners, it allows for talking and mingling while enhancing the event’s atmosphere. Not just the preserve of traditional music, the piano has just as much space in pop culture. From memorable movie scores from the likes of Star Wars and James Bond to pop artists like Coldplay, Queen and Adele, the piano is perfectly suited to provide live music entertainment. Pianos are also great at important occasions or holidays like Christmas or Easter where hymns and carols are a staple. Turning your event into a festive event or solemn experience is all possible with a professional pianist on the stool. With such a varied repertoire and universal popularity, there is no better accompaniment for your event.
