St. Paul, Minn. — Sometimes you just know.

The coordinator of the 2007 Minnesota International Piano E-Competition said, "When Alessandro sat down at the piano it was immediately apparent he was the winner - the contest was over!"

Alessandro Taverna charmed the audience at Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Minneapolis on January 23 this year.
