Tri-C Classical Piano Series (episode two: Gavin George)




Eleven-year-old prodigy Gavin George of Granville, Ohio, has been playing piano since age 2—after he became infatuated upon seeing a video of Andre Rieu and the Johann Strauss Orchestra. He had his symphonic debut with the Newark-Granville Symphony Orchestra when he was 7. Gavin won the Suzuki Association of the Americas international piano concerto competition in 2012 with Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3, first movement, as well as gold medals in 2010 and 2011 at the piano competition held by the American Association for the Development of the Gifted and Talented. He became the youngest musician to perform on the Emmy Award-winning NPR show “From the Top,” and Radical Media featured him in its documentary series “Prodigies.”
