Some kids know from a very young age what they want to be when they grow up; Anthony Ferraro knew he wanted to be a concert pianist. That is, until early onset arthritis in his hands threw his entire career up in the air. Ferraro grew up in a home where you didn’t hear much Top 40 music. The stereo played Beethoven sonatas, and his mom, dad and sister all practiced on the Yamaha grand in the living room. Ferraro gave his first recital at age six. By the time he was in high school his dream of becoming a concert pianist had come into sharp focus.
