Volunteer with Dueling Pianos

For my Strategic Communication Campaigns class, my group and I are developing a campaign for a bar called Shout! House, which is in downtown Minneapolis. It is a dueling pianos bar known for its unique atmosphere and musical engagement.

We were wondering if a student or student(s) from the School of Music could play the pianos, or have some other sort of participation between the School of Music and Shout! House Dueling Pianos.

This is a volunteer opportunity for current student musicians.
