Utah Symphony at BYU

Last week I took Joey to a performance of the Utah Symphony at BYU. They performed Brahms Piano Concerto No. 1 in D Minor, op 15 with Pinchas Zukerman, a world famous violist and violinist as the conductor and Jonathan Biss, 28, as the pianist. Joey is in orchestra this year at school and is learning to play the violin. One of the requirements for class is that he attend at least one concert each term so this was our first one together. Of all things, I was amazed at the talent of the pianist as this piece is nearly an hour long and he played it without any music and it was incredibly difficult. I love that Utah has so many cultural events like this to take the kids to!
