Luis Cardenas-Osorio is a senior at Berlin High School and he wants to give back to the Berlin/Gorham Milan Community for the support, kindness, and encouragement he has received to pursue his career in music something in return. For years he has dreamt about what to do and how to use his music for the community. With his graduation and his Senior Piano Recital the opportunity has come; he is going to perform his Piano Recital not only for a select group of friends, but to the entire community. This first piano/organ recital of "Music for a Cause" will be held at St. Kieran Community Center for the Arts on Sunday, June 8, at 1:30 p.m.
Mr. Cardenas-Osorio will be attending Princeton University in the Fall and states that before he begins his college career he has many friends for whom he wanted to express his gratitude and affection. Luis has been a student of Nancy Winsor for six years and he received the Donald Norton Scholarship to study organ music with Mrs. Winsor.
There will be a free-will offering for the concert to benefit non-profits in our area, that's why the name "Music for a Cause." Two of the charities that have already been selected by Luis are St. Kieran Center for the Arts and the North Country Relief Fund c/o Coos County Family Health Services.
This concert is an "add on" at the Arts Center and we hope many friends and colleges of the Cardenas-Osorio Family and the entire community will support this effort to show-case the importance of music in our schools and in our lives, and how these gifts can be used for an altruistic cause. Please mark your calendars and note the time of the concert: June 8 at 1:30 p.m.
