Exclamation I am in need of a few suggestions.

I play the piano, and I am planing on doing a fundraiser/concert this upcoming summer to help pay for college. My skill level is between Medium-High. Does anyone have any suggestions of what I should play?

Default More information

I mostly play music from both Classical and Romantic era. My favorite composer, however; is J.S. Bach. I am planning on playing Maxwell Eckstein's Rhapsodie, then move onto the Moonlight Sonata first movement, after that Fur Elise. As a closing piece I have chosen the piano solo from the Opening Theme from the First Movement of the Piano Concerto by Edvard Grieg. I need more than just four songs to play for everyone, so if you have any suggestions please let me know. I greatly appreciate you responding to my last post.

Thank you

You are very welcome James.

Well, if you can play the Moonlight Sonata, you can enjoy the following titles that I suggest you strongly:

1. Albeniz: Tango
http://www.virtualsheetmusic.com/score/Tango.html

2. Debussy: Claire de Lune (one of my favorites)
http://www.virtualsheetmusic.com/do...bussy/Lune.html

3. Satie: Gymnopedies
http://www.virtualsheetmusic.com/score/Gymnopedies.html

4. Tchaikovsky: Nutcracker Suite (even some piece of them)
http://www.virtualsheetmusic.com/do...Nutcracker.html

5. Joplin: Ragtimes (this is good especially for bis)
http://www.virtualsheetmusic.com/score/JoplinAll.html

Of course, you can find more for piano solo at medium skill level.

Please, let me know if you need any further suggestion.

All the best for your coming performance!

hi, I am very interested on your wonderful question. You know sonatas are really nice to play. However, you might want to consider other genres as well. If ever, please give me a specific genre you want to play?

Are you playing it for a college-aged audience? I think either way, Moonlight Sonata will have everyone in tears. It is such an emotional song. You should play that near the end and finish with something light-hearted, Vivaldi maybe?
