On June 13, at the Morgan High School Auditorium, at 7:30 p.m., The Sons of the Utah Pioneers will host a concert by the renowned pianist James Oniel Miner, along with special guest artist Daron Bradford.
Miner is fast becoming one of today’s most popular pianists, composers and entertainers. Audiences world-wide have enjoyed his ability to play spontaneous requests from the audience. He is often classed with performers the likes of Liberace, Erroll Garner, George Schering, Floyd Kramer, Marvin Hamlish and Roger Williams.
In high school Miner loved the music of Elvis Presley, Pat Boone and Nat King Cole. His talent later sent him to Julliard School of Music. Today his repertoire includes several hundred songs ranging from classical to Christian pop, from country to patriotic hymns, from Broadway to Hollywood theme music.
He has produced several popular albums including “Dream with Me,” “Inspiration,” and many, many others. Miner is internationally known, having performed in 41 of the 50 States as well as Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, South America and Japan. In 2004 he was honored with the prestigious “Listeners Choice Instrumentalist of the Year” award.
He is coming to Morgan at the request of Paul Dickson, president of the Morgan Chapter of the Sons of the Utah Pioneers. Tickets cost $15 for adults and $10 for youth. They may be purchased from any member of the Sons and at Paul’s Barber Shop.
The SUP will use this money to sponsor scholarships for local youth, to create lasting monuments to our pioneers of the past, and to commemorate good and great achievements among our community today. We urge you all to support this worthwhile event.
