CLEARWATER, Fla., Aug. 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In celebration of Summer the Scientology Information Center hosted a Piano Concert with performing artist Kathy Robert for over 30 guests at the Historic Clearwater Building in downtown Clearwater on Sunday, July 29th.
Kathy Roberts has entertained an average of 6 days a week at the Bon Appetit restaurant for the past 16 years. Roberts has been playing piano for over 40 years and arranged her first piano song at the age of 5. Roberts considers the piano “an old friend” whom she “never gets tired of.”
At Sunday’s concert, a first of a series this year, Roberts performed a wide array of songs from artists such as: Beethoven, Nat King Cole, Stevie Wonder, Led Zeppelin, Clearwater Credence Revival, John Legend, Ed Sheeran and more. She also played several requests including Duke Ellington’s Harlem Nocturne and Gershwin’s Rhapsody inBlue which brought the audience to its feet.
"Wow that was really beautiful! I didn’t think anyone could play Rhapsody inBlue without horns – but she sure did, what an amazing performance,” said Glenn, concert attendee.
“Kathy shares her excitement and joy for the piano with her audience when she plays. She’s vivacious and brings their spirits up,” said Amber Skjelset – Center Manager and event organizer. “The Center brings the community together, provides events that people enjoy and answers questions about Scientology for those who are curious. Since our opening we have hosted over 150 events like these.”
The Center regularly hosts free concerts for the community. The upcoming concerts are:
Sept 8th – Joanie Sigal concert
Sept 23rd – Kathy Roberts Piano Concert
