Pianist Roger Williams, will set a new piano marathon by performing for 14 hours — 8 a.m.- 10 p.m. Nov.17 at Fashion Show in Las Vegas.

Williams, 82, will be playing in the common area near the lower level entrances to Neiman Marcus and Macy’s.  He says his marathon “is to grab the public’s attention to the lack of funding for the arts, especially music education. We’ve expelled music from the classroom and I’m on a crusade to get it reinstated. I’ll have no program planned. I’m just going to take requests from people who stop by — and we’ll have a lot of fun,” he adds.

I’d suggest these tunes — “As Time Goes By.” “Time on My Hands” and as a finale, “It’s Time to Say Goodbye.” Any other timely suggestions? For the record — he has 18 gold and platinum albums, and is the only artist to have been given the Steinway Lifetime Achievement Award.
