Pianist Steward Goodyear lit up the night for the 2007 Schermer Scholarship fundraiser, performing Gershwin’s Concerto for Piano in F Major with the Columbus Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Guest Conductor Peter Wilson. His fiery performance received a heartfelt standing ovation.
The fundraiser netted over $10,000 through the generous support of friends and the sponsorship of Jones Day, Kegler Brown Hill & Ritter, LexisNexis, Terry and Cindy O’Connell and Time Warner Cable.
