The annual Ten Grands Benefit Concert for Music Education is returning to Seattle on May 14, this time with pianist Nader Kabbani, Amazon Transportation and Logistics worldwide vice president, as the community guest.

In addition to his work at Amazon — which has ranged from leading the original Kindle team to directing supply chain operations — Kabbani is an accomplished pianist with a passion for Beethoven, Bach, and Mozart.

The video below, posted to Kabbani’s YouTube channel, has nearly 50,000 views.

Kabbani will take the stage with dozens of other concert pianists at Benaroya Hall in Seattle. Each year, proceeds from the concert support the Seattle Symphony’s educational programs for children and other music education-related non-profits.

The concert will feature a variety of musical styles including classical, jazz, R&B, and pop. Ten Grands, now in its ninth year, always highlights one community guest artist.

“This year I’m also particularly excited that our board member Nader Kabbani will be performing at the concert as a community representative,” Seattle Symphony President and CEO Simon Woods said in a press release. “What a fabulous example of what’s at the heart of Ten Grands, that wonderful music making exists among and enriches people from all walks of life.”

Tickets for the concert are available for $42 on the Seattle Symphony’s website
