Boogie-woogie pianist to play benefit show

Famed boogie-boogie pianist Bob Milne returns to Enumclaw for an Oct. 28 benefit concert.

The 2 p.m. show is presented by Chalet Arts Showcase Theater as a fundraiser to help renovate the historic downtown theater. The goal of CAST is to bring a variety of performing arts to the Chalet Theater throughout the year while movies continue to be shown.

Milne’s concert schedule of 250 bookings a year clearly indicates his huge popularity and his performances stretch across the map. He has played before presidents and world leaders, including a performance in Japan and before the Swiss parliament. He has toured the world on behalf of the U.S. Department of State that engages him in the role of “Musical Ambassador.”

He was once filmed at the United States Library of Congress where he was given recognition as a “National Treasure.”

Milne’s performances can be viewed on You Tube and at www.bobmilne.com.

Admission to the Oct. 28 concert is $20. Tickets are available at the Enumclaw Chamber of Commerce, can be purchased online at www.brownpapertickets.com and will be sold at the door. A discount is available for piano students attending with a teacher.

For information call 253-332-8924.
