PIANO SLAM 2024 is a classical, Afropop and spoken word mashup featuring Miami’s top teen poets and winners of a countywide competition. Inspired by this year’s theme, “Rhythms and Writings of Restoration,” these young poets will perform alongside classical-piano duo Inesa Gegprifti and Asiya Korepanova, The New Canon Chamber Collective and DJ Anthony Laurencio. The show is directed by Tanisha Cidel and will feature a performance of Chucho Valdés’ “Suite Afrocubana a Lico Jiménez.”

In partnership with the Arsht Center since 2007, more than 115,000 Miami-Dade County Public School students have participated in PIANO SLAM programs, submitted over 27,000 poems and been judged by a jury of published poets.
