Piano Club

Dale Elliott plays Scott Joplin’s “The Entertainer” to a full house at the Sun City Piano Club’s “An Evening to Remember” concert on January 24, 2022 in the Sundial Auditorium.

Whether you enjoy simply listening to the vibrancy of live music or like performing for your friends and other club members, the Piano Club of Sun City’s monthly music programs offer something for everyone.

The Piano Club meets at 9:30 am on the third Friday of each month, October through April, in the Sundial Auditorium, 103rd Avenue and Boswell Boulevard. The club President opens the program with announcements, followed by the Master of Ceremonies who will introduce those members or guests who signed up to perform. Performers may play from their own sheet music or play from memory. To be fair to others, each performance is limited to five minutes. We welcome all levels of pianists and all styles of music.

The Piano Club also hosts summer performances on the 4th Monday of the month, May through September, at 2pm in the Sundial Auditorium.

We are very excited to have moved into our new, spacious studio at Sundial. We now have plenty of room for two grand pianos, a console piano, and the classroom keyboards. In addition, our studio contains a music library of donated music, free to club members.

We have instituted a series of music lectures, “In The Studio,” held every other month from October through April.  The studio is also the perfect place to practice duets, or perhaps practice on a grand piano for the first time.  Reserve time in the studio through our president.

You do not have to play piano to become a member or to enjoy the programs.
