Smart bets: Andrew Tyson

If there’s one thing as black and white as the keys dancing under pianist Andrew Tyson‘s fingers, it’s the young artist’s success. At just 29 years old, Tyson inspires global audiences with his “commanding and expressive performances, replete with imaginative interpretations,” according to his online bio. The Durham native has been featured as a soloist with the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, the Colorado Symphony, the National Orchestra of Belgium and the Orchestre Royal de Chambre de Wallonie, among many others, accumulating an impressive roster of accolades along the way. After studying at the University of North Carolina and the Curtis Institute of Music, the musician went on to earn a master’s degree at The Juilliard School. He brings his talents to the Haywood County Arts Council’s Young Artist Series, performing at Waynesville’s First United Methodist Church on Friday, Aug. 14, at 7:30 p.m. $22.
