Pianist to perform here for CARE fund benefit

February 14, 2011

You might not expect to find an Italian pianist of international acclaim in the Crossroads area, but that will be exactly the case Feb. 25, as Francesco Attesti will perform a piano concert to benefit the local CARE Fund.

Attesti — who is considered one of the finest interpreters of the Romantic and early 20th Century Repertoire — will be performing a program largely based on the works of Polish composer Fryderyk Chopin at the Hall Center for the Arts on the Howard College campus at 7:30 p.m.

According to CARE Fund spokesman Tommy Churchwell, when Attesti is referred to as world-renowned, it's anything but lip service.

“Last month he was touring in France,” Churchwell said. “He's a busy guy, playing all over the world. So, when we say he's internationally acclaimed, we mean it.”

Tickets for the concert are $25, according to Churchwell, with all proceeds going to the local CARE Fund.

“You can purchase tickets at the Big Spring Herald, Chamber of Commerce or at Churchwell Insurance,” he said.
