Keahi Donahue, winner of the Walter and Virginia Charles Concerto Contest, is a junior at Nederland Middle-Senior High School. He started playing piano at age five and especially enjoyed Chopin’s Waltzes. When he was eight, he tried the cello and loved it immediately. At age 13, he decided to focus on cello and quit the piano. Keahi joined the Greater Boulder Youth Orchestras in 2018 and was principal cellist of its Sinfonia ensemble from 2018-2019, of the Philharmonic from 2019-2020, and of the Symphony since 2021. For a few years, he was a member of the Twintet quartet with his twin sister and twin friends. The quartet busked regularly and was an opener for the Nedfest music festival in 2018. He has studied with Christine Mallery of the Greeley Chamber Orchestra and is now a student of Dr. Charles Lee of the Boulder Philharmonic.

Apart from music, Keahi enjoys research in physics, science conferences, backcountry skiing, Chinese science fiction, alpine ski racing, calculus, Asian food, and travel. He also recently published a research paper with his NOAA mentor on solar flare prediction.

The Greeley Chamber Orchestra organized the Walter and Virginia Charles Concerto Contest, now in its 42nd year, in 1982 for high school musicians from northern Colorado (Boulder, Larimer, Morgan, and Weld counties) to promote and publicly recognize outstanding musicianship in our youth.
