Keystone in the Media
Students at Keystone Academy would have never imagined that a concert by a world-renowned pianist would begin with improvisations by the students themselves. So, when Kimball Gallagher, New York-based classical pianist and entrepreneur, asked students to come forward for a musical conversation, everyone's hands went up. They were eager to converse with Gallagher, and their own peers, as they took to the piano two at a time conversing in notes and tunes. Soon, the close to 100 students, parents and teachers forgot they were seated around a piano on the stage of the school's grand Performing Arts Center. It assumed a salon-like ambience, which is the signature Gallagher style.
