Local students will be among the many musicians performing at the annual Ten Grands concert April 4.
Nearly three-dozen young musicians from 11 high schools will perform at Seattle’s Benaroya Hall during the evening’s showcase of talent that benefits music education.
Selected musicians will appear both onstage with the featured Ten Grands professional pianists, as well as in the Samuel & Althea Stroum Grand Lobby starting at 6 p.m., an hour before the Ten Grands concert begins.
Performing with the choir on stage is Issaquah High School soprano Ashley Young. Issaquah duet “The Half Steps” Bryan Hanner, baritone, and Elizabeth Moore, mezzo-soprano, will perform in the grand lobby.
Ten Grands Seattle features 10 concert pianists on 10 grand pianos in a stunning, dramatically lit setting onstage at Benaroya Hall in downtown Seattle.
Concertgoers will be treated to a musical variety show featuring classical, jazz, boogie-woogie, R&B, pop, original compositions and more. The pianists perform on a multitiered stage, playing as soloists as well as in various combinations, including all 10 playing simultaneously.
Only limited tickets remain for the popular one-night-only concert.
