ROSEBURG, Ore. -- A local teen is earning his way into a highly acclaimed piano institute in the Czech Republic.
Jaron Cannon, 18, put on a free concert Saturday night at UCC. All of the donations received from the performance in Jacoby Auditorium will go to help him attend an intense, two-week piano institute in Prague.
He was one of 48 students in the world to be selected to play in the international piano institute.
Jaron played classical pieces from Bach, Beethoven and Chopin, as well as a piece he wrote himself.
