Dream Theater’s Jordan Rudess recently hosted Keyfest, a three-day interactive keyboard event that offered workshops, masterclasses, and intimate concerts to keyboardists of all levels.

This year’s event included appearances from Tom Brislin of progressive rock band Yes and Bill Laurance of award winning jazz fusion group Snarky Puppy, who helped lead a variety of workshops throughout the week. Korg has supported the event for a third year, providing an elaborate list of gear for attendees to use including the Kronos, Krome and Kross keyboards. 

Korg’s senior voicing manager Jack Hotop taught a masterclass on the Secrets of Sound Design and Keyboard Performance on the Korg Kronos.

“Sweetwater was the perfect facility to host an event of this magnitude,” says Hotop. “There were numerous seminar rooms filled with stages, projectors and rows of various Korg keyboards that attendees eagerly played. I was proud to represent Korg and share my expertise on sound design for all who attended.”

“Aside from teaching workshops and offering product support, this event has given keyboardists all over the country a chance to connect with each other and share ideas,” says Eric Davis, product support manager at Korg USA. “As an attendee and musician myself, I had a great time talking with fellow players, geeking out on gear and enjoying a weekend where everyone shares a similar passion.”
