Piano Celebration

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Iowa & Western Illinois (RMHC-EIWI) sponsors the annual Piano Celebration through a partnership with Piano for a Richer Life and piano teachers of Eastern Iowa and the Quad Cities.

The Piano Celebration features celebrity pianists, high-achieving student pianists, piano teacher studios, living room performers, musicians and vocalists. Piano students and participants raise money and then showcase their piano talent while spreading the word that Piano Study = Brain Development. At the event, free-will donations are accepted throughout both days at information tables located outside of Dillard’s, the Food Court and J.C. Penney.

The money that is raised at Piano Celebration by the students and the donations taken during the event go to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois (RMHC-EIWI).

Since its conception in 2003, the annual Piano Celebration has raised over $430,000 for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Iowa & Western Illinois.

Piano for a Richer Life

Piano Celebration was founded by a group of piano teachers and music educators called Piano for a Richer Life. The goal of Piano for a Richer Life is to increase an awareness, recognition, and support for the study of piano for people of all walks of life. They assist organizations and individuals who teach, support, and provide music education in their schools and communities.

It is not too late to get involved in this year’s Piano Celebration. Each year, everyone from beginners to accomplished musicians participate in the weekend event – all levels of ability are welcome. If you are interested in participating in the 2021 Piano Celebration, please contact Lynn Kroeger at 563-285-8421 or by email at lynnkroeger@gmail.com.
