Piano Recital in the Dark

Dear Rowan [that's me!],

My name is Frank Horvat. I am a pianist, composer, and teacher from Toronto. I would like to invite you to the Vancouver stop of the Green Keys Tour on Friday, September 24, 7:30PM, at the Unitarian Church of Vancouver, 949 West 49th Ave. Admission is by freewill donation.

This family-friendly concert is one of 50+ in a yearlong cross-Canada tour promoting eco-sustainability. All the piano music performed is my original compositions and improvisations. It's a mix of classical and popular styles - from Liszt to Satie to Philip Glass. The highlight of the concert is the performance of my composition, "Earth Hour" - a continuous 1-hour piano piece inspired by, and performed in the dark.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of my new CD, "A Little Dark Music", goes to the World Wildlife Fund - CDs available online and at the show. I am fortunate to have the support of sustainable enterprises like Bullfrog Power, Salt Spring Coffee, the Delta Vancouver Suites, and the Unitarian Church of Vancouver sponsoring this event. Please visit where you can find out all the info about this concert.

My tour is a grass-roots movement and a labour of love. I am greatly relying on people like you to help spread the word about the Green Keys Tour:

1. Please forward this email to anyone you know that might be interested in attending.
2. Join the Facebook fan page -
3. Post the concert poster. Downloadable here:

As part of my visit to BC, I will also be performing in Victoria on Sept 25 and Nanaimo Sept 26. You can view a list of all the places I'll be visiting across Canada at

I hope to see you on September 24!
Thank you, Frank.
