Please congratulate Brady Timmons for being a Chandler Starr Miller Mendelssohn Club Piano Competition Finalist.  He will be performing in the finals this Saturday,
3/11/23 at 2PM in the Starr Auditorium, 415 N. Church St.  Brady only started playing the piano 3 years ago here at Auburn.  He is currently in his junior year but aspires to be a professional performer.  He discovered an instant love and connection to classical music.  Chopin is his favorite and will be one of the composers whose works he will be performing in this competition.  Brady practices 2-3 hours a day and 4 or more during competition preparation.
