This Event Is Now In The History Books
On March 10th at 7:00pm, a most amazing event will begin. For the next 24 hours, Matt will be playing the piano. Why? Matt will be trying to raise enough money to get to the Edinburgh Improv Festival. Matt has been an improv pianist since he was 14 and has been called The Best Improv Pianist in Vancouver if Not In Canada! by Alan Marriott, Artistic director of Adlibretto In fact, it has been rumoured that he is basically a genius. Thanks to Ken Lawson of Vancouver Theatre Sports for that one.
In August of 2017, the best Improv artists in the world will be heading to Edinburgh for the Edinburgh Improv Festival to perform, share, learn, and grow as artists. Matt will be there!
The goal of this 24 hour Piano Marathon is to raise enough money for Matt to get there. Specifically, $3000 to cover the cost of flights. You can support Matt by being at the marathon. Plan to stay for the whole thing, or pick your favourite parts and just go to those.
Plan on being there. Not only will you be supporting Matt but you will be supporting the idea that North Vancouver artists can take their art to an international level!
