The Northwinds Symphonic Band winter concert is set for Saturday, Feb. 23.

Included in the concert is a performance by Hall County pianist Allie Heard, who will be performing the Amy Beach Piano Concerto with the Northwinds.

Heard has published four albums of her music and aims to be an original songwriter along with a concert musician. She plans to attend Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee, to study commercial music.

“I’ve always liked the idea of coming up with your own ideas for a song and writing in a studio. I’d still love to be able to do that with the piano,” Heard said on Wednesday.
