FMCSD Student Bentley Penn- The Passion of Piano

On this Sunday evening as we prepare for school tomorrow we would like to introduce you to Bentley. Bentley is 8 years old and first started playing piano when he was 5. When his fingers touched the keys he found his passion. As Bentley says, “When I won my first competition I was so excited!”

Bentley had the opportunity to play two pieces in Korea with a full orchestra- the Citi PhilHarmonic Orchestra this past summer! Bentley says, “When I walked on stage I was so nervous. Most kids when they walk on stay they are really nervous until the end, but when i was playing i was not nervous anymore. I was so proud of myself.”

We are extremely proud of you too Bentley. And we can’t wait to hear your stories after you play at Carnegie Hall in January!
