Concert association presents piano duo

Simon & Son, America’s only father/son piano duo, will play at the Moffat County High School auditorium, at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 13 as part of the 2009-2010 concert series.

The Simon & Son duo includes the youngest performer ever in Carnegie Hall. Internationally acclaimed pianist/humorist Peter Simon is joined by fellow pianist and son, Saling Simon, “in a delightful evening of classical and popular music interspersed with humorous stories and fun for all ages,” the sponsoring Craig Concert Association reported in a news release.

“With a repertoire ranging from Cole Porter to Wipeout, Simon & Son shatter classical music’s pretensions with a dash of humor spicing up the Schubert,” the Concert Association reported.

Tickets are $20 at the door; or the last of the season memberships are available. They cost $30 for adults and $10 for students.

For more information, call Julie at 824-5251.
