On this episode of Meet the Artist, WOUB’s Nicole Schneider talks with 13-year-old Athens, Ohio, pianist Anthony DeLuca.

DeLuca, who has been playing piano since age six, is a regular performer at Cutler’s Restaurant in the Ohio University Inn.

While most teens would be self-conscious about performing in public, it doesn’t seem to faze DeLuca, who played for an audience of 200 at his cousin’s wedding.

“I feel confident when I perform in front of others. I think they enjoy listening,” said DeLuca of the OU Inn’s clientele.

While his future goals are still undecided (he is entertaining the idea of becoming an architect), DeLuca has no plans to stop playing piano.

“I’m just going to keep on taking lessons and see where it takes me,” he said.
