Philip Fortenberry to play Liberace Exhibit

Pianist who played the “Piano Double” for Michael Douglas’s Liberace in HBO Film Behind the Candelabra to perform for final week celebration of “Too Much of a Good Thing is Wonderful” at Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas

Philip Fortenberry, who portrayed the hands of Liberace for the unbelievable piano scenes in the HBO Film “Behind the Candelabra” will be help bring to a close “Too Much of a Good Thing is Wonderful,” the exhibition of Liberace’s costumes, piano and car at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas this Wednesday, September 24, 2014 at 3:00 p.m.  The exhibition is set to see its last day on September 29th, after being held over for 9 months.

Mr. Fortenberry, one of the few pianists recognized by the Liberace Foundation for an uncanny ability to play like Liberace himself did, will play a few classics for us on Liberace’s own, Radio City 7′ Swarowski Baldwin piano, which has been part of the exhibit.  This musical exhibition is free to the public at the exhibit inside the Cosmopolitan Hotel, thanks to Mr. Fortenberry’s generosity and desire to draw donations to the Foundation.

Philip Fortenberry’s spectacular piano work will be a wonderful topping off of the final week of an exhibition which hosted a dozen professional pianists who have graced ivories during its long-extended term at this venue.  Philip’s performance “The Man at the Piano” takes place at the Smith Center on October 5.
