“We are thrilled to be bringing his unique spirit and musical talents to Colorado viewers with this special edition show,” said Shari Bernson Director of Membership at CPT12. “As you may also know, he’s also one of the youngest philanthropists in the world, already supporting several non-profits with his concerts around the country.”

Ethan is a Florida born songwriter, actor, and musician who began his piano career at the age of 3 working on a keyboard and mimicking any music he would hear. In the short time since, he has become an accomplished musician including in his repertoire everything from complex classical masterpieces to jazz and pop music. He has made numerous performances on many of the most prominent national television venues, such as The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Oprah Winfrey Show and Good Morning America.
Ethan will hold yet another astounding accomplishment by supporting PBS with his musical talents and becoming one of the youngest musicians with his own concert special on PBS television. His concert will be filmed at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles and aired nationally later on PBS affiliate stations.
