Piano Slam is a classical, hip-hop and spoken word mash-up featuring Miami's top teen poets. Participating students will perform original poems they composed based on their life experiences or live classical music they heard in school. 

The teens will be performing with Classical Piano Duo Inessa Gegprifti and The New Cannon Chamber Ensemble with the beats of synth and keyboard star Anthony Laurencio.

While the performance is free, first-access passes are required to guarantee seating. You can only get those passes by clicking here. There is a four-pass limit per guest.

Location: Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, 1301 Biscayne Blvd, Miami.
