Piano Recital of Christmas Carols by Kenneth Grigg

  • Glessner House Museum 1800 South Prairie Avenue Chicago, IL, 60616 United States (map)

Experience a late afternoon concert in the elegant parlor of Glessner house when pianist Kenneth Grigg performs traditional Christmas favorites on the Glessners’ 1887 Steinway piano.  The Glessners frequently entertained leading musicians from around the world in their home, and many of themperformed on this piano.  In this special concert, Grigg celebrates the season with his renditions of many of our most beloved Christmas carols amidst the rooms decorated for the holidays just as the Glessners would have done more than a century ago. 

Tremendous dynamic range, and every complex emotion given us by great composers, is represented in Grigg’s playing; it is his goal to evoke all the colors of the voice, and all the potential of the world's sounds, through the piano.   The Boston Globe noted, “The beauty and specificity of Kenneth Grigg’s piano playing was altogether exceptional.”
