Young Artist Ethan Bortnick Coming to Providence

Rhode Island PBS is pleased to announce Ethan Bortnick, 13-year-old composer, pianist and entertainer is coming to Sapinsley Hall at the Nazarian Center for the Performing Arts at Rhode Island College on Monday, October 12, 2014, for two performances. Both shows (3 p.m. matinee and 7 p.m.) have Meet & Greet opportunities.

Damien McGinty (Celtic Thunder/Glee) will also be joining Ethan as a special guest artist.

Rhode Island PBS will air Ethan's latest show, Ethan Bortnick: Live in Concert: The Power of Music in March!

Beyond his gifts as a consummate musician, Ethan Bortnick is a driven humanitarian, too. Hie believes music has a higher purpose -- an ability to emotionally connect people, encourage them to help others, and ultimately, affect change in the world. Through his music, Ethan has already helped raise more than $30 million for children's charities and other causes across the world. Ethan Bortnick is the youngest performer ever to headline his own international concert tour, and he has so far appeared in more than 200 concerts in the United States, Canada, Brazil, South Africa and Australia. He has moved audiences nationally and internationally as a pianist, composer, singer, entertainer, and a driven humanitarian, dedicated to combining his musical pursuits with his charity work.

At three years of age, the Hollywood, Florida native begged his parents for piano lessons and discovered an uncanny ability to hear a song once and play it back note for note - the musical equivalent of a photographic memory.
