Carl Johansen: Motorcyclist. Violist. Carl will be performing the Schumann Marchenbilder with pianist Ning Lu this Sunday as part of Utah Viola Society’s Spring Recital.

Sometimes at night after a concert when I’m driving home I hear a noise behind me. I look in my rear view mirror just in time to see a motorcycle speeding up behind my car. It passes me, speeding away into the night. I notice a stripey viola case on the driver’s back.


(Carl, slow down and be safe!)

On Sunday, come see Carl take us on a ride through Schumann’s Fairy Tales.

Sunday, March 6, 3pm, Dumke Recital Hall, University of Utah.
