I am currently attending the Eastman School of Music where I am pursuing a
Bachelor of Music Degree in Piano Performance.

I will take fate by the throat; it will never bend me completely to its will.

Featured Soloist – Beethoven Choral Fantasy – November 10, 2013

with the Williamsburg Choral Guild, Williamsburg, Virginia

“The program’s highlight was the Choral Fantasy, with guest pianist William Hume. Formerly of Yorktown, the 17-year-old is a talented youth whose keyboard control was impressive. The Fantasy offered him abundant opportunities to showcase his notable skills, each opportunity regaling us with his obvious ability and future potential.”          John Shulson, Virginia Gazette
