Cole Urnes, 16, a multi-instrumentalist who received honors at the Port Angeles Symphony's 2012 Junior Young Artist Competition, will play piano in the church at 525 N. Fifth Ave., and everyone is invited to enjoy the music as well as the hot meal to follow at 12:30 p.m.
Tickets are $10 for Music Live with Lunch, and no reservations are needed.
Cole, a junior at Port Angeles High School, will offer a 30-minute interlude with Beethoven's Pathetique, Rachmaninov's Prelude in G Minor, Chopin's Polonaise in A Flat Major and a Mozart sonata.
Cole has played tuba for two seasons with the Port Angeles Symphony Orchestra, and took up the piano just six years ago with teacher Thelma McCoy. Last year, he began studying with Kayla Dyment.
He also is an accomplished jazz musician, and plays trombone with the Port Angeles High jazz ensemble and euphonium with the wind ensemble.
When not immersed in music, the teenager is in the water: he's on the high school's swim and dive teams.
Also a vice president of Port Angeles High's science club, Cole plans to major in biology in college while taking a minor in piano performance. The young player has stepped forward to volunteer as the February Music Live with Lunch artist after the death of Dorothea Hover-Kramer, the pianist who had been scheduled to perform. Hover-Kramer died suddenly of a heart attack Jan. 15.
To find out more about this and other Music Live with Lunch concerts held the third Tuesday of the month at St. Luke's, phone the parish office at 360-683-4862.
