Treat yourself to a moving evening of solo piano music from two delightful composers who will take you on a journey, with the piano as their vehicle. You can preview a sampling of their music on this Spotify playlist: https://open.spotify.com/user/rachlafond/playlist/4hm9UB4CBvMSi51Ed1veOz?si=rSgRf0ShRW21d4TV1vD9Hw Dr. Joseph Akins is a professor, composer, pianist and keyboard player, and has been deeply involved with music all his life. He performed professionally in his family’s country-rock band as a child, toured with classic pop-rock bands after high school, and studied with the best jazz educators while in college. Since, Joseph has taught a variety of music and recording classes at the college level, has composed original music for multiple albums and films, and has performed hundreds of concerts from the smallest venue to the amazing Grand Ole Opry. As an award-winning billboard-charting recording artist, today he promotes his seven self-released albums of instrumental music, which can be found at www.josephakins.com. Rachel LaFond is a composer who tells epic tales about life’s mysteries and its most powerful moments through music. Her fine-tuned technique, natural instinct for songwriting, and deep belief in the piano as an ideal tool for authentic expression shine through during her compelling performances. Originally from Seattle, Rachel has traveled the world and now lives in New Zealand. She draws inspiration from her travels, the natural world, and the vibrant stories of others. Rachel will be performing music from her second album, Encounters of the Beautiful Kind (releasing June 1st), as well as music from her debut album, Wandering Soul. Rachel’s music can be found at www.rachellafond.com. Notes: There will be two halves with an intermission. For everyone's enjoyment, please plan to silence cell phones, remain seated, and pause conversation during the performance. Concerts can be delightful events for the whole family, and we are pleased to offer a discounted price for children. However, given the intimacy of the event, we do ask parents to consider whether their kids will be able to sit quietly during the performance to determine if this event is right for them. There will be a chance to say hello to Joseph and Rachel during intermission and after the show. CDs and sheet music will also be available for sale. Light refreshments will be provided.

TESTIMONIALS

  • Testimonial from tuning Bosendorfer grand for concert pianist in Seattle:
    It was a great pleasure for me when I played my piano extensively yesterday later in the day after the piano was tuned. I felt great benefit from the clarity of the sound and liked and enjoyed it very much. So did my wife too when she played - and she has excellent hearing. Thank you dearly!
    – Hartwig E.
  • Kenn, Thank you very much. I appreciate your help and time and cooperation. Stage 7 came highly recommended to us and I am thankful for your help. Getting all of this insurance mess wrapped up has been a challenge.
    – Douglas
  • Stage 7 provides the finest concert grand in the area for our studio recitals. Kenn and his staff are most professional. At every recital, they give us the warm reception, wonderful service and make us all feel like home.
    – Yunbo C.
  • My name is Kim B and I'm a piano teacher in the Kirkland area. I've used Stage 7 Pianos numerous times for my piano recitals. The staff is always so helpful and flexible to work with. The acoustics sound fantastic for performances and my students have an extra bonus by being able to play on world class concert grand pianos! Looking forward to using this special venue for many years to come.
    – Kim B.
  • I feel as if a new friend has just entered my life....a beautiful Young Chang piano from Stage 7. After 50 years without a piano, I immediately fell in love with the sound and beauty of the piano and the expertise of the staff at Stage 7 helped me cement my decision. They refinished the bench, tuned the piano and made sure that I was connected with an outstanding piano mover who carefully negotiated a few tight left turns to get my piano into its new home.
    Starting piano lessons again after so many years is a joy....and sitting down to "practice" fills a place that was missing in my soul. And my family has adopted Young Chang and my son and granddaughter sit down to play each time they visit....bringing extra smiles and warmth to my home.
    Thank you, Kenn and staff, for answering all my questions and for helping me choose a new best friend.
    – Deborah C.
  • Kenn, you are running a great business and I am proud to be a part of it. I love that you care for the family and the piano after the sale. I feel cared for and valued as a customer.
    You have made this a pressure free experience for us. Payment, loaning the moving equipment and following up about everything going well.
    Thank you!!
    – Mike T.
  • Thank you all again. Truly this is a dream come true. I can assure you the piano will be a cherished instrument. Thanks for the care you clearly give all the pianos!
    I think I played the piano for about six hours on Saturday! My husband is totally enjoying listening to me play again (even with all the wrong notes and crazy tempos) and my daughter is interested in learning. Believe me, this piano could not have a more adoring family! And my granddaughters just cannot wait to play it! I just referred someone to Stage 7!
    Thanks again!!!
    – Deb J.
  • I have used Kenn’s piano tuning services since 2001. ... I found his knowledge of pianos extensive and have continued to call on him over the years. ... Kenn is always prompt, courteous and very kind to my old and temperamental piano. I recommend him to anyone who is looking for a tuner.
    – Kerry D.
  • Just as buying our piano was a big decision, so was selling it. I had no idea where to start, but decided to send Stage 7 an email. I received a prompt, honest, and very helpful response from Kenn Wildes. He gave me current market information that proved to be 100% accurate regarding selling the piano on my own. As a result, I later consigned my piano to Stage 7 and it sold very quickly. Couldn’t have asked for a better consignment experience!
    – Carl B.
  • As a music teacher, I've really loved working with the Stage 7 staff as they've been very helpful with hosting recital space for our group. Parents and students have loved the selection of pianos and also their beautiful space!
    – Jonathan and Christine M.
  • Kenn helped me look at and assess a used Steinway B piano that I purchased for a venue in Seattle, The Royal Room. Kenn was honest, helpful, and very easy to work with. The piano has worked out great, the performers love it, and we have been very happy.
    – Wayne H.
  • We were extremely pleased with the piano tuning and repairs that Kenn provided. He is very professional, skilled, and personable. His prices were very reasonable for the amount of time and effort he provided (which was a lot). We highly recommend Kenn!
    – The Knickrehm Rich Family
