Known throughout the world as a virtuoso on piano, George Winston will give a solo concert on Friday, March 31, in the Chalberg Theatre on the Brainerd campus of Central Lakes College. The show marks Winston's fourth appearance as part of the CLC Theatre's Cultural Arts Series, and the presentation is supported by A Woman's Choice, with additional contributions from the Minnesota State Arts Board.

Winston's early recordings include "Ballads and Blues" and the best-selling "Autumn." His albums "December" and "Winter into Spring" both went platinum, and he is also known for his two tribute albums to jazz pianist Vince Guaraldi. Winston will release his newest recording "Spring Carousel," the same day he appears in Brainerd. The disc features a collection of 15 solo piano compositions he wrote himself while in recovery from a bone marrow transplant.
