Joel Schoenhals

Joel Schoenhals is Professor of Piano at Eastern Michigan University and Foreign Expert at Central China Normal University in Wuhan, Hubei, China.

Between 2012 and 2016, Schoenhals performed the cycle of Beethoven’s 32 piano sonatas, reaching thousands of Michiganders through over 70 community engagement concerts in salon atmospheres as well as in historic Pease Auditorium at Eastern Michigan University. Live video recordings of the complete cycle can be found on the music living project websiteand on his YouTube channel

Drew De Four

Drew De Four is a 6'7, Belgian-American, singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, dueling pianist, and actor from Ann Arbor, Michigan. His original music blends the bluesy balladeering of Tom Waits, the soul-infused playfulness of Dr. John, and the vibrant virtuosity of Ray Charles.

Although he plays in a variety of formats, Drew's most recent incarnation as a solo piano performer has proven to be his forte. While promoting his original material, Drew enlivens audiences with his charismatic piano-playing style and inexhaustive repertoire. Though typically solo, guest musicians and even a backing band might also accompany a Drew De Four show.
