Sunday morning Rock Star and I climbed into my car and headed to beautiful Lindsay Street Hall in downtown Chattanooga, Tennessee for the Whisperings Solo Piano Concert featuring David Lanz, Michael Dulin and Joseph Akins.

There was a nine-foot Steinway grand piano in the house.
The artists took turns performing sets of their original compositions then concluded the concert with a rousing joint improvisation. Hand clapping, foot stomping, and a standing ovation ensued.
Following the program, I indulged my inner fangirl. I purchased CD’s and sheet music, collected autographs, and took advantage of every photo opportunity.

There was even a cameo appearance by Irish pianist J. J. Sheridan.

After the last fan had left for home, I had the privilege of joining the artists for dinner at Tony’s Pasta Shop and Trattoria for a lovely dinner.

If you ever have an opportunity to hear one of these musicians perform in your area, I hope you will take advantage of it. These men make some of the most beautiful music on the planet. In the meantime, I encourage you to visit their websites and listen to Whisperings Solo Piano Radio, available for free on the internet.
