The Cascade Symphony Orchestra concludes its season with a May 7 performance with the theme “Roman Festivals.”
It will showcase the work of 17-year-old pianist Stephen Binondo, a Running Start student at Edmonds Community college.
Binondo will perform Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 2, the same piece for which he was awarded a concerto gold award in the 2017 Northwest Chopin competition. He performed the piece with Orchestra Seattle.
His interest in piano began when he was a year old, playing on a Lego piano. He began playing the real instrument at age 5.
The piano concerto first caught his attention when he listened to it at a young age. “I very much enjoy playing this piece,” he said.
