Dino rocks

| March 11, 2013

COSHOCTON – Called “America’s Piano Showman,” Dino Kartsonakis filled Roscoe United Methodist Church March 2, with laughter, song and made all 88 keys on the grand piano literally sing with praises, patriotism and piano perfection.

In tributes to veterans, his faith and family, Kartsonakis certainly lived up to his namesake. The audience gave its approval with a standing ovation and Mount Vernon pianist Timothy Noble also performed to the delight of those in attendance.

Brother and sister, Christopher and Erica attended with their parents, Carol and Ken Lefever, who are involved with Christian Healthcare Ministries, who helped sponsor the evening.

Nine-year-old Christopher said, “He was good, awesome. I enjoyed the Lone Ranger theme song and the Sound of Music theme.”

Twelve-year-old sister Erica said, “He was good. I also liked the Lone Ranger theme and “Great is Thy Faithfulness.”

About the Author ()

I live with my beautiful wife Nancy on a small farm just outside Coshocton. We have been married for thirty two years and have two grown children, Jessica and Jacob. Jessica is married to Aaron Mencer and they are employed with Coshocton City Schools. Jacob is a sophomore at Kent State University. I graduated from River View High School, have a Bachelor’s Degree from North Carolina Wesleyan University and am actively involved with the Roscoe United Methodist Church, serve on several local committees and am a member of the Coshocton Kiwanis Club, having served as Past-President. I love reading, especially military thrillers, the Civil War and history in general. My goal is to write a novel. My wife and I are also AdvoCare distributors and encourage anyone wanting to lose weight, gain energy and better health to explore AdvoCare at our website; www.fortunes4advocare.com. I love the media field, innovative technology and have worked in newspapers for over 30 years – in fact, my first job was delivering newspapers. The Beacon is a dream made possible by the support of this community and a great team. I hope to continue serving Coshocton County for many years.
