Back from Europe, Roseburg teen to host concert

ROSEBURG, Ore. -- A Roseburg teen used used his musical talent to take him all the way to Prague in the Czech Republic.

Now, he's setting his sights on a goal a little bit closer to home: college.

Jaron Cannon, 19, is asking for the community's help to raise money for music classes.

Cannon will be holding a piano concert this weekend, where he'll be accepting donations.

He says he has received community help before, and that donations are what helped him get to Europe. "It was the exact amount we had hoped for, we were... it was overwhelming support," he said.

This year, he hopes to be able to pay for college courses and take voice lessons.

Jaron will be performing at the First Presbyterian Church this Saturday at 7:00 p.m.

Admission is free, but donations would be appreciated.
