classical pianist searching for resort work
If anyone knows a resort that is hiring a classical pianist would you please let me know. Thank you. Abe Minzer
I think you'll find that most resort restaurants here are open air, which is unsuitable for a piano, and most visitors want to hear island music, like steelpan, as they can hear pianists in restaurants at home.
Although the Ritz Carlton on STT will be closed for the summer for renovations, you might want to contact them as they do hire classical musicians.
Robert's has a great piano bar. They might like a classical brunch or something... I am not sure it would make you enough money to live on, if that is of concern. This is a restaurant on St Thomas.
arrived on stx a week ago and am catching up with posts at the buccannear (free wireless). there's a guy playing a baby grand right now...
I agree with STTResident. The Ritz in STT will be closed from Aug 15-Nov 4, but when they reopen, they might have use for a pianist in 3 of their 4 restaurants which will be enclosed after the renovation. I have seen a variety of musicians perform here, such as keyboardist, Harpist, violinist, steel pan players, etc.
The Buccaneer on STX might be worth a try. They had a nice baby grand on the Terrace Bar, with someone playing at least a few of the nights we were there.
The Buccaneer Hotel and The Galleon Restaurant both have live piano music frequently. Tutto Bene has a piano in the restaurant, but I have yet to see anyone playing it since they opened the new location nearly 3 years ago.
You could try the Westin on St John, I know that their restaurant, Chloe and Bernards has a pianist.
