Friday, Jan 25, 2013, 11:00pm
214 Central Ave. , White Plains, NY 10606
Elton John, the marquee performer of our generation, will perform “Live” at Faust Harrison Pianos, 214 Central Avenue, White Plains on Friday, January 25th, beginning at 11 pm, only he will be onstage at Disneyland’s Hyperion Theater in Anaheim, California. How is this even “remotely” possible?
Thanks to Yamaha’s groundbreaking DisklavierTV™, powered by RemoteLive™ technology, Elton’s performance on the Yamaha Disklavier reproducing piano onstage with a 70-piece orchestra will be streamed live over the Internet and simultaneously to remote Disklaviers across the nation, and in many countries around the world. His actual piano keystrokes are then faithfully recreated, note for note, in real time on each of the remote instruments, while the entire orchestra is seen and heard on adjacent monitors, in perfect sync with the remote piano performances. The historic Anaheim event, which will be attended by Yamaha dealers, is part of the company’s 125th year-long anniversary celebration.
At the Faust Harrison Pianos White Plains event, Elton will be playing one of his signature Red Pianos remotely at the store, across the country, from the stage in Anaheim.
“Elton John is one of the most successful and influential music makers of our time, and Yamaha is thrilled to bring him to a global audience in this history making manner,” said Chris Gero, vice president of Yamaha Entertainment Group of America, which is producing the event. “This exciting event will also demonstrate how Yamaha DisklavierTV is forever changing the way in which a live piano performance can be enjoyed in real time around the world.”
Speaking of the newly-announced concert, Elton said: “I’m constantly astonished by the inventive skills and versatility of the Yamaha team. Not only have they built all my touring pianos for the past 20 years, as well as the wonderful Million Dollar Piano that resides at Caesars Palace, but they’ve also now perfected the RemoteLive technology, which means that effectively, I can perform the concert live in Anaheim on January 25, live across the Internet and also live in venues worldwide–all at the same time! I am both proud and grateful to be a Yamaha artist and to enjoy the fruits of Yamaha’s amazing expertise.”
