Oakton Six Piano Ensemble Auditions are Now Being Scheduled in September and October

Auditions for this internationally acclaimed group are now being scheduled in September and October. To schedule an appointment or for more information, contact Glenna Sprague, at gsprague@oakton.edu or 847.635.1905. Be part of a unique musical experience as a member of the Oakton Six Piano Ensemble.

Founded and directed by Glenna Sprague, professor/coordinator of music at Oakton, the Ensemble performs repertoire from the classical, ragtime, jazz, and popular periods that is transcribed for the multiple pianos. Performing with a conductor, the rich layered sound of the Six Piano Ensemble is comparable to that of an orchestra, with each member playing a different part of a composition as the melody transfers from pianist to pianist.

The Oakton Six Piano Ensemble has amazed and delighted sold-out audiences internationally and nationally, including: the World Conference of the International Society for Music Education (ISME) at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow; International Conference of the College Music Society in Vienna, Austria; Hawaii Music Teachers Association in Honolulu; Music Teachers National Association (MTNA) National Conferences in Atlanta and Spokane; Steinway of Chicago Community Concert Series, National Conference on Keyboard Pedagogy, Navy Pier, and Civic Opera House in Chicago.

In November at the Illinois State Music Teachers Association (ISMTA) Virtual State Conference, the Ensemble is performing a virtual concert/lecture entitled: “40 Fingers and a Conductor: Creating a Virtual Experience for a Non-Traditional Piano Ensemble.”
