On Monday, I titled my blog entry "Fotopalooza". Two days later, I got an email announcement from NJPAC about "Pianopalooza".
Announcing NJSO Pianopalooza, an unprecedented interactive event in anticipation of the Orchestra’s Art of the Piano month. We invite you to create and submit videos featuring your own piano performance to the NJSO’s group page on Vimeo.com.

Not quite the concert pianist? Don’t worry, you’ve still got a shot at online fame! With the Most Creative Video category, the sky is the limit. Have you mastered the art of chopsticks on your iPhone keyboard? Can you take "Heart and Soul" to a new level? Show us!
