Orchid Island Golf and Beach Club will host the Vero Friends of the Atlantic Classical Orchestra’s “An Intimate Evening of Beautiful Piano Music” annual benefit concert on December 5, from 4:30–7p.m. This year’s program, entitled “Invitation to Dance,” spotlights virtuoso pianist Drew Petersen.

Known for his intense and commanding performances, the New Jersey native became a piano prodigy at the age of five and graduated from Harvard University when he turned nineteen.

The sought-after soloist, recitalist, and chamber musician whose repertoire ranges from Johann Sebastian Bach to American pianist Judith Lang Zaimont, is an award-winning artist, as well. In 2018, Petersen was honored with the Avery Fisher Career Grant and, in 2017, the American Pianists Award and Christel DeHaan Classical Fellowship.

Mr. Petersen will perform lauded works by Carl Maria von Weber, Frédéric Chopin, and others. Afterwards, he and Atlantic Classical Orchestra’s music director David Amado will host an après-concert reception with plein air cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.

Tickets are $125 per person. Seating is limited. To read the full article, click here.
