Recognized by the Guinness World Records as “The World’s Youngest Solo Musician to Head-line His Own Concert Tour,” 18-year-old Ethan Bortnick has been performing around the world, raising over $50,000,000 for charities across the globe.
When he was just three years old, the Hollywood, Florida native asked his parents for piano lessons and discovered an uncanny ability to hear a song once and play it back note for note – the musical equivalent of a photographic memory. He soaked up the music of such diverse artists and composers as Beethoven, Mozart, jazz pianist Bill Evans, Little Richard, Billy Joel and Elton John, and began creating original compositions at age five. A few years later, Ethan began making television appearances and touring, connecting with audiences in countries such as Japan, Brazil, Canada, South Africa and Australia.
In his all-new, inspiring series, Celebration of Music, Ethan Bortnick will search for exciting young talents across America and play host to them at local PBS studios nationwide! Contestants will have a chance to win a guest spot performing in front of the cameras on television and the potentially life-changing opportunity to appear LIVE onstage at one of his concerts in the area in front of thousands!
