& the golden age of piano music


What is the Vintage Piano Hour?


The Legend of Tony Stride

 It has been over 100 years since the invention of recorded sound.  But in the past few years in North Texas, a rich tradition of musical excellence has re-emerged with the fabulous sounds from Mr. Tony Stride. Taught in the timeless traditions from the golden era of music, Mr. Stride will share an evening of great music inside the elegant Heard-Craig Center for the Arts.  Your toes will be tapping to "I've Got Rhythm" and many more!
