One Weekend/Two Concerts

We were excited about our visit to the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts last Friday. The National Symphony Orchestra’s concert featured Yuja Wang, a brilliant young Chinese pianist, playing Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 5. Noted for her prize-winning artistry, as well as her skimpy concert attire, the intermission talk was as much about Wang’s short skirt and four-inch heels as her music.

Then on Sunday, we went to another concert, this one in a church in Silver Spring, Maryland. That concert featured thirty-six piano soloists, each playing for about a minute. One was our grandson, Grady, playing “The Hubbub Rock”.

He’s probably not destined to be another Yuja Wang, but it was our Grady and we cheered.
