Thanks to the generosity of a 1975 Port Angeles High School graduate, national award-winning youth pianist Leo Yang will perform at Field Hall Arts and Event Center on Saturday, April 13.

Presented by North Olympic Healthcare Network


​​Terry Correia, who will also perform at the event, is donating the services of both herself and Yang because of a desire to support Olympic Medical Center and the OMC Foundation. “I know that this is a difficult time financially for most hospitals in the country,” so I wanted to do something for OMC. “My mom has been treated there, and has received excellent care.”

Also performing at the event will be the prestigious UW Wind Ensemble, who will play as a group but also will accompany Yang on Rhapsody in Blue at the conclusion of the show.

Brad McDavid, who just retired as the University of Washington Husky Band Director after a 30-year career stint, opened the door to bring the wind ensemble to Port Angeles. McDavid and the Husky band has performed at several Sonny Sixkiller Husky Legend Golf Classics, which benefits the OMC Foundation and is held at Cedars at Dungeness Golf Course.

Six local musicians – Jesse Ahmann, Nancy McPherson, Harley Names, Jim Janssen and Nathan and Samantha Rodahl will also play with Yang for Camille St. Saens Septet, Opus 65.

Yang is one of the best youth pianists in the country. A 16-year old high school student in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, he was the 1st place winner in the Elite International Duet Competition, which then featured him on a recital at Carnegie Hall  in New York in February of 2022. His many awards include 1st place in the South Carolina piano competition at Wingate University in January of 2022, and the audience award in the 2022 Knabe finals in Maryland.

He is also the captain for the Piano Performance Team led by Correia, a group of 3-5 students from North Carolina who are selected by audition each year. It was created to give talented young pianists various opportunities to perform as well as provide a community outreach program in the arts. 

They have performed for military troops, colleges, churches, retirement communities, restaurants, The Palace Theatre in Myrtle Beach, and many school systems in North and South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee and Washington, D.C.


Before graduating from PAHS, Correia played all over town. She was an elementary and middle school and Holy Trinity Lutheran Church accompanist. She was also the first full time organist for First United Methodist Church and a percussionist for the Port Angeles Symphony.

In addition, she was the student conductor and pianist for the Port Angeles Youth Orchestra, and was in the high school orchestra, choir and pops choir.

Directed by Tim Salzman, the group is the select wind ensemble at the UW and is comprised of the finest wind and percussion players on campus. It is open to the entire student body regardless of major field of study.

In addition to performances throughout the year at Meany Theater, recent off-campus performances include appearances at prestigious music conventions and several concerts at Benaroya Hall at the invitation of the Seattle Symphony.

The London Financial Times review of one of those concerts applauded “music of surprising sophistication, Cindy McTee’s Finish Line pulsated energetically and William Bolcom’s Song was simply gorgeous.”

In addition to collaborating with many internationally renowned guest artists, conductors and composers, the Wind Ensemble has undertaken several international concert tours, including a total of six trips to Japan and China. They will perform in Daejeon, South Korea in late March.

The ensemble’s appearance at prominent concert venues in Beijing included a sold-out concert at the National Center for the Performing Arts in Tiananmen Square, which was broadcast nationwide on China Central Television.
