The critically acclaimed “Poet of the Piano” made a unique performance for elementary students Thursday in Fayetteville.
Andrew Tyson made an appearance at the new school with an audience of 250 students before his Saturday showcase at the Walton Arts Center with the Symphony of Northwest Arkansas.
Tyson is a special guest to the venue, earning distinction across the U.S. and Europe.
“What I find inspiring too is to meet kids who maybe haven’t realized that you can be passionate about something for a long time and really develop yourself through that passion as well,” Tyson said. “And I know that certainly growing up I didn’t have too many examples of musicians coming to the school I went to, and I would’ve been grateful for that.”
The event, Masterworks 2 – Verdi and Chopin, is Saturday at the Walton Arts Center.
