Pianist Benjamin Salman of Seattle came in second with his performance of the first movement of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 5 in E-flat major called “Emperor.”

Honorable mentions for the competition were pianists Mya King of Silverdale and Michael Lee of Issaquah.

This final season performance will follow the upcoming Feb. 23 and Feb. 24 concert weekend, “The Grand and The Pastoral,” which will feature works by Smetana, Tchaikovsky and Beethoven. Guest cellist Elizabeth Lee will perform two works for cello and orchestra.
