In the beginning....
As a boy, his dream was to play the piano just like Roger Williams. But this boy didn’t have his own orchestra. So he had to make do with two large hands and ten long fingers, creating his “orchestra” as best he could, on a creaky old upright. How did Mac Frampton develop such a huge sound? Out of necessity.
As a teen, he sought to be liked. Admired. So he entered a Key Club competition that took the small town Southern boy all the way to the big stage in Long Beach, California, where he received the top international award from the iconic Pat Boone. Where did Mac Frampton realize the undeniable passion to perform? On that stage in California.
As a young man, he yearned to have a career as a performer. The Van Cliburn International Piano Competition beckoned, where the great Van Cliburn listened to him and said, “You have a career.” How did Mac Frampton discover the world out there was waiting for his musical vision? From the encouraging words of a legend.
As a performer, for the better part of four decades and counting, Mac Frampton has realized his dreams. He’s played the huge arenas and the concert halls, soloed with the great orchestras, released over 25 recordings. His number of return engagements is unprecedented.
Mac Frampton has been guest soloist with such symphonies and orchestras as the Boston Pops, Mantovani, St. Louis, Milwaukee, New Orleans, Cincinnati, Jacksonville, and Atlanta. He's shared the stage with Glen Campbell, Roberta Flack, and many others.
Dreams do come true and Mac continues to share his dreams with audiences world wide having performed over 4,000 concerts.
