Hollister among pianists in festival

A concert featuring many of the young pianists from the Piano Extravaganza! 2009 Festival Competition at the University of Rhode Island will be held at the Warwick Public Library at 600 Sandy Lane on Saturday, April 25, at 2 p.m.

Samuel Hollister of Jamestown will be among the performers.

Each participant in the annual festival competition for pre-college age piano students was required to perform a 10-15 minute solo of advanced repertoire from memory before an audience and a panel of judges in the URI concert hall in early April.

For more information, contact Associate Professor Dr. Manabu Takasawa, who coordinated the piano festival and is arranging the concert, at 874-2790.
