Dueling Pianos Event to Benefit Asnuntuck College Students
The New York Pianist and Upscale Dueling Pianos were honored to be asked back to perform for the Asnuntuck Community College Foundation in East Windsor, Connecticut for 3 consecutive years. This time for the 50th Anniversary Celebration.
Each year we put on our high-energy, crowd-engaging Dueling Pianos Show. For this particular event we push tips for song requests (a great fundraising idea for your events). At the end of the night, we donate the tips back to the cause.
Funds raised from the event are used to help support student scholarships and programs at the college. The evening starts with an hors d’oeuvres reception and a silent auction, featuring gift cards, baskets, and sports memorabilia. New to this year’s event was dessert by Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream. A proven success for several years in a row, we are able to generate funds through table sponsors, ticket sales, auction, and song request tips.
From the College
Dueling Pianos-Music and Song for Scholarships will feature New York City Upscale Dueling Pianos performers Steve Laureti and David Ross. The performing duo will entertain the audience in an interactive evening, featuring a variety of tunes, including the music of Billy Joel, Journey, Frank Sinatra, Bruce Springsteen, and more. An added way to support the cause will be for audience members to Tip for Scholarships and have the chance to hear their favorite songs.
Keith Madore, Executive Director of Asnuntuck Community College’s Foundation said, “The Asnuntuck Foundation is excited for the return of Upscale Dueling Pianos to energize a room full of supporters to raise funds for scholarships for our community college students.” He added, “We learned that the power of music and song certainly unifies a community who are vested in higher education and the vitality of providing a quality and affordable education for all. We value our community partnerships and the relationships this event fosters throughout the year.”
