Piano competitionCOSHOCTON – The 28th annual Edward E. Montgomery Jr. Piano Competition was held on Sunday evening, April 3 at the Triple Locks Theatre with four student finalists competing in the junior division. Pictured from left are: Claire Killiany, who performed Waltz, Op. 64, No. 1 by Chopin; Leah Brinker, who performed The Horseman, Album for the Young, Op. 68 by Schumann; Mirra Williams, who performed Le Petit Negre by Debussy; and Jakob Reveal, who performed Prelude in E Minor, Op. 29, No. 4 by Chopin. Killiany was announced the winner and was presented with a $250 cash award from the Montgomery Foundation by Executive Director Linda Scott. “I’m really excited,” Killiany said. “I’m kind of surprised; they all did a really good job. The piece was by Chopin and half of it is really kind of fast and the middle part is kind of slow and more dreamish.” Beacon photo by Mark Fortune

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.
