Watch prestigious pianist and public radio show host Christopher O’Riley redefine the possibilities of classical and contemporary music on Feb. 22 at 7 p.m. in Bloomsburg University’s Carver Hall.

O’Riley will perform his unforgettable solo show “Out of My Hands.” The classical crossover artist plays an array of different interpretations from Radiohead, Nirvana, and Pink Floyd to classics like Beethoven and Chopin.

The musician’s passion has gotten him several recording contracts with labels like Sony Classical and a four star rating by Rolling Stone Magazine on his recording of Radiohead’s “True Love Waits.” He also has been this host of the National Public Radio’s “From the Top” show for the last 10 years.

O’Riley’s work appeals to a diverse fan base of all ages and shouldn’t be missed this Saturday. Tickets are $30 for adults and $15 for students with a BU ID and children 12 and under. Tickets can be purchased at the box office in the Haas Center of the Arts or online at
