"Watson is part church pianist, part classical pianist, and part jazz pianist, but that description really doesn't go far enough: he is above all an interpreter of the highest caliber..." (William Bares, Ph.D., Pianist, Scholar, Associate Professor at UNCA)


AVAILABLE AT THE CONCERT: Alex Watson will be releasing A Sacred Reflection, his second piano album recorded at Seclusion Hill Music by sound engineer Phil Ludwig.  The album exposes virtuoso and colorful expressions of southern gospel hymns arranged for solo concert piano.
