DuelingPianos

Dueling Pianos with Jeff and Rhiannon return to the Marysville Opera House this Valentine’s Day for a dinner and show that evening.

The opera house at 1225 3rd St., Marysville will host the evening on Feb. 14, 6-9:30 p.m. Dinner starts at 6:30 p.m. and the performance starts at 7:30 p.m.

‘Dueling pianos’ is a type of show where two performers play a variety of songs and entertain an audience throughout the night.

“It is an amazing interactive performance,” said Lauren Woodmansee, cultural arts supervisor with the city of Marysville.

This is the second time that Dueling Pianos with Jeff and Rhiannon will play at the Marysville Opera House.

“They performed with us at the opera house last May and it was so popular and a sold out night,” said Woodmansee. “People were begging us to bring them back again."

After they played the first time, city officials thought about when to bring them back for another performance.

“We thought we’ll make a new night out of it and add a twist to it,” said Woodmansee, and said they scheduled the night for Valentine’s Day this year.

“So it will be a neat alternative to a Valentine’s dinner,” she said.

The two performers coming to Marysville put on a show with a variety of songs.

“They bring in two pianos and ‘duel’ each other through the night, playing songs based on the audience’s requests,” said Woodmansee.

“We hand out pieces of paper and pencils so that people can write down what they want the performers to play,” she said.

The audience is also able to join in on a lot of the songs that the two play.

A catered, multi-course meal will also be available at the event. 

Tickets include dinner and non-alcoholic beverages. Wine and beer are available separately for purchase as a fundraiser from the Marysville Rotary.

Woodmansee encourages anyone interested to reserve their tickets soon as they are selling quickly.

If tickets are still available they will be sold at the door.
