Favorite Gig: “Wherever I’m playing at the moment, whether an open mic in a bar, a concert at the Kennedy Center, or the Opera House orchestra pit for The Lion King national tour.” Late Bloomer: Didn’t start formal piano lessons until he was almost thirteen.

Tour’s Crescendo: Meeting Raul Castro’s daughter, Mariela Castro, a prominent advocate for LGBT rights.
