Solo pianist George Winston in benefit performance at BPA September 28
An Evening with George Winston
A Benefit for the Rotary Club of Bainbridge Island’s Scholarship Foundation
One Night Only: Friday, September 28 @ 7:30 p.m.
At Bainbridge Performing Arts (BPA)
GRAMMY award winning, multi-platinum solo pianist George Winston will make an extremely rare appearance at Bainbridge Performing Arts on Friday, September 28, 2018.
Best known for his melodic season’s collection, “December,” “Winter into Spring,” “Summer,” and “Autumn,” this extremely up close and personal performance will benefit the Rotary Club of Bainbridge Island’s Scholarship program that provides financial support to graduating seniors for their exemplary community service achievements.
During the evening Winston will perform a variety of solo piano selections from his expansive catalog including the “Music of Vince Guaraldi.” In the AllMusic Review of George Winston’s “December,” William Ruhlmann asks “How can music be simultaneously stirring and soothing, relaxed yet exalted? Millions have found the answer here, and an industry has spent decades trying to duplicate it.” See https://www.allmusic.com/album/december-mw0000196371.
This performance is sold out.
