Monticello Native and Pianist Jim McDonough Kicking off 15th Year Touring

Monticello native and pianist Jim McDonough has made quite the name for himself as an international Steinway artist over the years. McDonough is currently kicking off his 15th year of touring with a holiday concert… and he says hasn’t forgotten how it all started in Monticello.

As McDonough mentioned, his show is new every year and this year’s “Holiday Grande 2017” concert tour will feature several students from the Manchester area.

McDonough will bring his concert to Anamosa this Saturday night and Monticello this Sunday afternoon, with shows also planned for Dubuque, Cedar Rapids and Cedar Falls in the weeks to come. All proceeds from the tour benefits Camp Courageous. For more details and ticket information, go online to
