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