Piatgorsky Foundation puts on concert for Breckenridge ISD students

The Breckenridge High School and Junior High School band students had an opportunity to see and hear a live performance from concert pianist Mary Au and clarinetist Katsuya Yuasa, courtesy of the Piatgorsky Foundation. This endeavor was hosted by members of the Friends of Historic Breckenridge at the National Theatre on Monday, Jan. 14.

The Piatgorsky Foundation sponsors world renowned concert musicians who are willing to tour the United States in 250 concerts per year and go to small, rural communities and perform for musically inclined students. In this case, the BHS and the BJHS band students viewed the two seasoned concert musicians perform.
