Sumi Jo & Fuzjko
Thanks to Awesome Uncle Zack, Eriko and I were able to attend the Seattle Symphony last night. The first half was Beethoven’s Piano Concerto #5 with Fuzjko. Fuzjko is a wonderful piano player and we were treated to two encore performances of Chopin and Frances List. Eriko thinks Fuzjko is a little rough, but I can’t tell the difference.
The star of the show, though, was the second half - Sumi Jo. She is a Soprano singer with an amazing voice. Her songs were mainly French, so I couldn’t understand the words but I was blown away by the quality. In one song, she was matching the notes and timing of flute players. She also wore two stunning dresses and looked very pretty. Eriko is a big fan of Sumi Jo.
Since Fuzjko is part-Japanese and Sumi is Korean, the audience was composed primarily of Japanese and Koreans.
Back at home, Zack did a wonderful job at his first baby-sitting gig. Jerry didn’t cry at all and fell asleep in his arms.
Eriko and I couldn’t have had a better night!
