conservatory of piano’s annual festival of giving

tis the season!

The Christmas Festival of Giving is back, and better than ever!


For 2022, we are thrilled to announce our partnership with The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium.

On Wednesday, December 7th, and Friday, December 16th, The Conservatory of Piano will be performing at the Lakeside Theater during The Columbus Zoo’s annual Wildlights festival.

Instead of “ringing the bell,” our students have traditionally “tickled the ivories” to raise money for many great causes; and this year we are helping raise money for the education division of The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium.

Performance dates and times:

December 7th – 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
December 16th – 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM

Students may sign up for a 30-minute time slot at 6:00, 6:30, 7:00, 7:30, 8:00, or 8:30. This will be on the stage at the Lakeside Theater, just to the left of the lake as you walk into the zoo. Although the stage is covered, it is outdoors, so please dress appropriately!

We will have hand warmers as needed.

* Participation is limited to current Conservatory students only.

Wildlights at The Columbus Zoo is an amazing experience for the whole family, and participants are welcome to enjoy the lights before/after their performances. All students participating will receive free entry to the Zoo, as well as free parking for their parents.

For now, let’s bring some joy to the season and raise money for wildlife education by playing our best Christmas songs!

Personally, I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas, how about you?

Many thanks, and happy holidays!
