IMC Festival of the Arts Performance – Nate Hance
July 14 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Nate Hance is a Twin Cities-based pianist, composer, and entertainer and a Minot, ND native.
From a young age, Nate discovered a love of sharing the joy of music with others. As a shy kid, he was most comfortable sitting at the piano and connecting with people through music. He always knew he wanted to pursue a career in music, so he went to college for music composition at Concordia College in Moorhead, MN. While there, he discovered a knack for performing and was selected to perform Britten’s Piano Concerto with the Concordia Orchestra.
After college, he performed around the world on cruise ships, playing for guest entertainers, production shows, top 40 dance sets, ballroom dancing, and everything in between. When he returned to land, he established his music business, sharing his talents with live audiences of all kinds and expressing his creativity by writing unique medleys, mashups, and original music. He has also worked to perfect his piano tricks, where he plays piano backwards and upside down!
He plays over 300 gigs each year for numerous audiences, but his favorites remain providing a few moments of respite for stressed travelers at the MSP Airport, entertaining seniors at nursing homes, playing jazz with the Nate Hance Trio, and putting twists on classic songs with Cocktail Combo. Follow Nate’s creative endeavors on YouTube, TikTok, and Instagram, where he’s always experimenting with new ways to explore and share his craft.
