Bortnick returns, Gerds has details: Prodigy plays the Weidner Center Thursday

As we’ve mentioned here before, child prodigy Ethan Bortnick will play a return engagement at the Weidner Center Thursday (May 15), less than a year after he headlined a concert and PBS special benefitting the Kress/Mattson Parkinson’s Fundraiser. Bortnick, 13, wowed crowds last July when he played with special guests at the Weidner, recording a concert program that aired on public television in December. Local 5 Critic-at-Large Warren Gerds wrote about Bortnick’s return in a Monday (May 12) column on the station’s homepage. You can check it out (noting that the correct date of the show is Thursday, May 15. An early version of the column contained the incorrect date).
