About the event
May 19 - 3PM | Emile Pandolfi - Concert Pianist
With more than half a billion streams across platforms including Pandora, Spotify, and Apple Music, Emile Pandolfi ranks among America’s most popular piano artists. Although the majority of his performance repertoire is lush, intricate arrangements of Broadway and pop standards, his influences are, in fact, more classical than pop. It is this subjective layering of classical style, which Emile infuses into the broad palette of his performance selections, that continues to resonate with audiences everywhere.
His most recent project is the book Play It Like You Mean It: Supercharge Your Playing and Let Your Piano Work for You. A light-hearted and humorous guide for pianists from amateur to professional, Play It Like You Mean It shares Emile’s holistic philosophy harmonizing method and mindset to help pianists communicate through every chord and resonate more passionately with listeners, while bringing more joy to the daily practice of music. He also maintains an active global travel schedule, hosting a small group of fans on international luxury tours each year. Each trip includes intimate performances in concert halls and historic venues.
Emile started recording in 1991, and since then his albums of familiar music have sold more than three and a half million CDs nationally. This has earned him the distinction of being one of the top-selling pianists in the music industry, distributed online as well as in specialty, gift and book shops across the nation. Now with 30+ albums, most major online retailers also carry Emile’s music for download, and it is streamed thousands of times daily on Spotify, Pandora, and other streaming platforms.
Emile's parents were first-generation Italian-Americans, and communicating with passion was natural. While Emile was growing up, the Pandolfi home was known as “the place to gather.” Music was always a part of their home, and always associated with fun.
He carried that attitude into his concert performances as, although serious about his playing, Emile is never serious about himself. Audiences have enjoyed his brilliant musical performances, while also being entertained by Emile’s charming, light-hearted sense of humor and outgoing personality.
No matter how you experience Emile Pandolfi, you’ll experience the intensity and skill of communication that can only come from a true artist, in every sense of the word.
