On Saturday, March 5 at 4 p.m., Grand County Concert Series presents Classical Pops & Pizza with William Hume. This is a free community concert designed for young people. The performer’s fee is underwritten by Mountain Moon Yoga and the pizza for the reception after the concert is donated by Elevation Pizza.

“We are thrilled to offer our first free community concert with a young artist, performing for young people,” said Judy Baxter, President of the Concert Series.

“There is no charge for students or adults for this event because of the generosity of our sponsors.”

William Hume is a student at the Eastman School of Music where he is pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in piano performance. Hume will perform in the concert series’ first full length performance for young people. As a high school student he participated in a wide variety of student orchestra, symphonic and jazz bands. Hume has established himself as a recitalist, concert soloist and chamber musician. He has performed on the National Public Radio program, From the Top, at the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage and Carnegie’s Weill Recital Hall. He is the American Prize Winner – 2014, 1st Place Piano Solo (High School Division).

While his musical studies and accomplishments are impressive, his community involvement and desire to share his music is inspiring. He has volunteered as a pianist for local fundraising events, nursing homes, Salvation Army and military functions. He has also played in a fundraising event for one of the 600 music clubs forming the National Federation of Music Clubs to benefit high school students’ music careers.

This special event will be held at Church of the Eternal Hills in Tabernash.
