A solo piano concert fundraiser event for Holy Family Youth Ministry will be held Thursday, Sept. 5, 7 p.m., at Holy Family Catholic Church, 8950 County Highway J, Woodruff. There is a $10 suggested donation.
Returning again this year for the solo piano concert is Joe Bongiorno of Sedona Ariz. Bongiorno has a contemporary solo piano music style, new age, similar in genre to Jim Brickman, Yiruma and Kevin Kern.
Joining Bongiorno on stage is David Nevue. Nevue’s style is neoclassic, with a strong focus on melody.
“I’d have to say the music that has influenced me the most was the music I was listening to during my college years. I was really drawn to progressive rock acts at that time, especially bands like Rush, Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull, Renaissance and Kansas,” Nevue said. “As far as the piano goes, were it not for my being introduced to the music of pianist George Winston, I don’t think I would have ever considered writing for solo piano.”
