On Saturday April 30th musicians all over the world convened to celebrate International Jazz Day. We are so happy that Klavierhaus had the opportunity to participate in the event by providing the piano for the Jazz Day All-Star Global Concert on the South Lawn of the White House.

Not only was it exciting for Klavierhaus to have a presence at the White House, but also to take part in an event which “was a show of musical kinship across every kind of border,” a sentiment which resonates with our mission as well.

Performers included Herbie Hancock, Aretha Franklin, and Chick Corea, to name a few.
