17-year-old Hana Oshima started playing piano when she was in 2nd grade. She says there were times when it felt like a chore, but now it’s a passion.

Oshima was accepted to Rocky Ridge Music Center’s summer program in Colorado. It costs $4,000 for the prestigious 5-week camp.

Oshima is about $1,500 short, so she is holding a fundraising concert. KRBD talked to Oshima about her pursuit of music. Listen here:

Oshima’s concert is Saturday at Ketchikan Presbyterian Church at 7 p.m. First Bank will match the donations she receives, and that money will go towards a summer art school in Ketchikan.
