Bortnick Coming to WV in May! Watch WV PBS for Ticket Opportunities
Watch Ethan Bortnick Live in Concert: The Power of Music
Sunday, March 2 at 7:30 p.m. on WV PBS
In this special concert, 12-year-old composer, pianist, and entertainer Ethan Bortnick is accompanied by a 50-piece orchestra, four-piece band, and the 120-member Kids Choir.
Ethan performs with passion and heart – his fingers fly across the piano keys in “Minute Waltz,” and the audience rocks out to “Rock Around the Clock,” claps to the beat of “Lean On Me,” and participates in a very enthusiastic sing-along of “Crocodile Rock.” He’s joined by special guests Damian McGinty of Glee and Celtic Thunder and Grammy-nominated vocalist Jane Monheit, who add even more color to the musical rainbow on stage. You will get chills when you hear “The Earth Song,” and feel the power of music when Ethan performs an emotional and inspiring rendition of “We Are the World.”
Ethan is scheduled to appear at the Clay Center in Charleston on May 25. Pledge your support and you may select a thank you gift of tickets to this concert. Limited quantities of meet and greets are also available.
