Plane Crash on the Runway?!? | Vlog 3

Today on the way to Teton Village/Jackson Hole, WY...

I was shocked when our pilot made an announcement to look out the ride side of the window as we landed in Salt Lake City.  He said something like 'if you look to your right, you'll see how you don't want your landing to go.'

A small plane looked like it had an (apparently) minor crash on the runway.  I hope that nobody was injured.

I arrived in Wyoming and am excited for the concert tomorrow in the Grand Teton Music Festival for their opening concert.  It's an on-stage concert, and I'm very happy that it's sold-out!


I'm also trying to get much better at making semi-regular vlogs, so please watch, comment, subscribe, and share them as they come out!  Here's the latest:

Jurassic Park/World Cover

Jurassic World was a fun, summer action flick...

and it reminded me of the amazing film score by John Williams.  I used to play it as a little kid, but haven't in many years.  So I had to go home and play it. :)

Listen to the 2015 BBC Concert Orchestra Tour!

The BBC3 Radio has just broadcast both concerts with Keith Lockhart and the BBC Concert Orchestra from West Palm Beach, FL from April, 2015!

As many of you know, I spent April touring the United States with the BBC Concert Orchestra and Keith Lockhart, performing the Shostakovich Piano Concerto No. 2 and the Ravel Concerto in G Major.

Two of those concerts were recorded for radio broadcast throughout England, and they are now available for the next ~month online!

Concert 1 features the Shostakovich Piano Concerto No. 2 with the Volodos/Mozart Rondo alla Turca (Turkish March) for an encore.

Concert 2 includes the Ravel Concerto in G Major, with an encore where I took four notes from the audience.
