Beth Lederman grew up in a world filled with music. Her family
owned Lederman Music Company, one of Arizona's largest
music store chains. With a whole store filled with pianos, all
begging to be played, what was a young girl to do? Learn to
play! Determined not to waste any time, Beth began classical
study at the age of 5. She quickly mastered the basics and then
branched out to jazz and classical music. If you're goods at
these, you can play any style,she say's, including Latin (she
leads a Latin group.)

Her music education includes attending Lewis & Clark
College, Mt. Hood Community College, and NAU, where she
received a BA degree in music, cum laude. She has been an
active performer ever since. In April she plays with the Natalie
Cole Tribute Band, at CIBO Restaurant, The Mad Hatter Brew
Club, Royal PalmsHotel with vocalist Alice Tatum, and of
course, with us in Payson.

CD's will be available at the performance.

$5 donation per head at the door includes refreshments.
