PIANO SLAM Returns to the Arsht Center

April 19 at 7:30 p.m.
Knight Concert Hall | Free admission*

Join us for Dranoff2 Piano’s classical, hip-hop and spoken word mash-up featuring Miami’s top teen poets. Students are invited to write poetry about life experiences or live classical music they heard in school for a countywide writing competition. PIANO SLAM finalists will perform with a string quartet of international classical musicians, Piano Duo Spektra, Miami’s hottest dance band Afrobeta and professional poet Arsimmer McCoy.

The PIANO SLAM 2023 music and writing theme is “Hot Music. Hot Miami.” Teens will write about the music that makes them cool in their increasingly hot hometown. What is hot music? Beethoven? Chucho Valdés? Beyoncé?

The Miami Herald has recommended PIANO SLAM as a hip musical showcase for young Miami poets in an extraordinary collaboration of international artists.
