Samuel Otten Presents Piano Concert to Benefit STARS Scholarship Fund

Samuel Otten, pianist and composer, will present a concert Sunday September 3, 4:00 pm. at St. James Episcopal Church, 533 Bingham Ave., Sault Ste. Marie, MI. The piano concert will benefit the Soo Theatre Arts Resource Studios (STARS) scholarship fund. Tickets are adults $10, students 6-12 $5 and under 6 free. Tickets are available at the Soo Theatre office or at the door. Mr. Otten will perform original music as well as a mix of old favorites from the Forties and Fifties and contemporary praise pieces.

Sam, a 2002 graduate of Rudyard High School and 2006 graduate of Grand Valley State University, began music lessons with his mother at age four and later studied with David Erfourth, former choir director at Rudyard High. He has been composing music since he was in middle school and continues to enjoy music composition in his free time. He is currently in the Ph.D. program in mathematics at Michigan State University. Sam is excited to present a concert which will benefit arts scholarships because various scholarships have allowed him to study music as a young person.

The Soo Theatre Arts Resource Studios (STARS) offers instruction in dance, music, visual arts, theatre and yoga for students of all ages. Registration for classes is open now for the fall term which begins the week of Sept. 11. Registrations are taken in person weekdays 10-6 at the STARS office.
