Daniel Souvigny, 16-year-old, award-winning pianist, will be performing at FUMC on Monday, August 21st at 7:00 pm.
Admission will be $10.00. Be sure and mark your calendar for this special concert in Ames. Souvigny inherited his musical talent from his father, a pianist and church organist, and has been performing since age eight. Amazingly, Daniel excels at both classical and jazz piano, performing everything from Bach to Beiderbecke. His prodigious talent was nurtured by local piano teachers in his home town of Hampshire, Illinois, and a top Russian professor during travel to St. Petersburg in 2016.
Daniel has performed in numerous festivals and competitions, earning top honors for his technique and improvisational skills. He is passionate about performing blues, ballads, ragtime and jazz. Reviews from festivals have described Daniel as “the new sensation who plays with power and surprising musicality,” and a “whiz kid whose fingers fly across the keyboard.” His first album, “Tearin’ Up the Keys,” was released in 2013, and his new album, “Possibilities,” was released in 2015. A recent review states: “65+ minutes of music at a skill level which most artists twice his senior would feel fortunate to achieve.”
