CANNON BEACH — Stephen Beus, a professional pianist, will give a classical concert at the Cannon Beach Community Church 6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 21. He will perform on a Steinway Model B grand piano.
Tickets are $10 and only sold at the door the day of the show.
This Steinway was acquired in August 2017 by the church to enhance the quality of music and musical performances in Cannon Beach and Clatsop County.
The concert is being sponsored by the church — and by Escape Lodging in memory of the company’s CEO, Tom Drumheller, who died Sept. 17, 2017.
Beus, a Steinway artist and longtime friend of Drumheller, currently teaches piano performance at Brigham Young University, and is an internationally acclaimed concert pianist.
He has been featured in piano recitals and performances across the U.S., as well as in Kazakhstan, Russia, Finland, Denmark, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Germany, Georgia, China, France, Italy, Portugal, the Czech Republic and Morocco. He recently returned from an international tour in Finland and the United Kingdom.
Fanfare magazine writes: “His playing is strikingly original and … he has an interpretive voice all his own … Above all, his playing is so natural as to seem effortless, and the sound he produces has extraordinary richness and depth, not quite like anyone else’s.”
