Father and son piano duet team coming to Wadena

The Wadena Area Concert Association will present Simon and Son, the only international father and son piano team on the concert circuit today, at the Memorial Auditorium on Sunday, March 27 beginning at 7:30 p.m.

World-class entertainment for the whole family, with high energy programs ranging from Liszt to Liberace to Gershwin, pianists Peter and Saling Simon present a dazzling evening of keyboard acrobatics, popular and classical music and humorous concert tales about travels on the world concert stage.

The son, Saling (pronounced Sailing) has delayed his final year of college to be involved with his father Peter on this current tour. Saling has been doing these tours with his father since he was a budding teenager.

In addition to the wonderful piano duets played by this unique and innovative team, sometimes audiences will see Saling at the piano with Peter playing the clarinet and sometimes Saling will take over the drums and execute a magnificent version of the famous drum solo of "Wipeout."

A hit of the evening is always an astounding duet version of the "William Tell Overture" -- the Lone Ranger theme music -- as even the Lone Ranger has surely never heard it!
