PianoForte Chicago features a beautiful and intimate Recital Hall perfectly suited for recitals and recording sessions.
“If there’s a more intimate, embracing and acoustically inviting space in Chicago to hear a piano recital than PianoForte Studios, on South Michigan Avenue, we have yet to encounter it. Increasingly used by classical and jazz musicians, the concert hall at PianoForte once again showed its value on Friday evening, when pianist Bruce Barth played a solo set during the closing weekend of the seventh annual Chi-Town Jazz Festival. As always at PianoForte, a first-class instrument was at the soloist’s fingertips.”
Howard Reich – Jazz Music Critic – Chicago Tribune – March 13, 2016
The intimate-sounding Recital Hall and the concert quality piano on stage make it a destination for professional performances, various chamber music ensembles, private musical events and parties, and student recitals involving family and friends.
We occasionally have two pianos on stage which allows duo pianists or concerto performances with two pianists; please phone ahead to confirm your request.
The space offers an intimate salon atmosphere one rarely finds outside of Europe with excellent acoustics and stage lighting, as well as reference-quality recording capability.
