The Penn State Piano Ensemble promotes the study, awareness, and above all performance of piano ensemble music in a friendly multicultural environment. The ensemble appears regularly on and off campus in studio recital projects, faculty concerts, the Bach's Lunch concert series, and other venues. The ensemble plays a wide range of repertoire for different combinations: music for one piano (four, and six hands) as well as music for two pianos (four, and eight hands.) In addition to traditional music as well as rarely performed repertoire, one of the Penn State Piano Ensemble's goals is also that of commissioning new music.
