Concert association presents piano duo

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.
