"If you've ever heard a piano quartet performed, chances are the piece was either composed or arranged by these guys," says Christopher Hahn of the UM School of Music. "Two pianos, eight hands, the sound is truly symphonic. Nobody does it better."

The American Piano Quartet will be featured at the Celebrate Piano series from the UM School of Music on Wednesday, Nov. 16 at the Dennison Theater in Missoula. They'll perform at 7:30 p.m. They stopped by Montana Public Radio to give a taste of what they have planned.
