Mac is one of the featured artists at the annual Ten Grands Seattle concert at Benaroya Hall, a fund-raiser for music education.  This talented  young musician (bio also attached) has been blind since birth. Rotarians from Kirkland and other clubs around Greater Seattle have been loyal supporters of Ten Grands since the inaugural concert in 2008. This year’s event will be held Friday, April 4 at Benaroya Hall. Another sellout is expected.

Ten Grands features 10 grand pianos and 10 concert pianists on a stunning, dramatically-lit stage playing a variety of classical, jazz, blues, gospel, boogie woogie, pop, and contemporary music. Artists play simultaneously, in various combinations, and individually.
