      Mr. Showmanship: An Extravagant Liberace Tribute
      Starring David Maiocco

      Monday, January 20, 2020 at Duling Hall • 7:30 p.m.

      This concert is a salute to Wladziu Valentino Liberace, perhaps the best known virtuoso pianist of the twentieth century.

      “Liberace,” who embraced a wildly flamboyant lifestyle both on and off the stage, “didn’t just give concerts, he put on a show.”
      He was best known for making classical music more fun and accessible for his raving audiences. For Liberace, the performance was most important, and he showed it by wearing exotic costumes and performing on rhinestone pianos with a candelabrum on top.

      This season, we pay tribute to Liberace through his spiritual successor, David Maiocco. Dressed in similar flashy fashion, Maiocco embodies Liberace’s flamboyant style from the second he walks on stage!

      Tickets are $25 in advance / $30 at door.
