For the past eight years James Oneil Miner has been bringing arrangements of classic songs like “Somewhere in Time,” and “Unchained Melody” to audiences around the world. And audiences keep coming back because it’s the kind of music people love.
Miner will be coming to Morgan on Friday, June 13, 2014, at Morgan High School auditorium at 7:30 p.m. This event is being sponsored by the Sons of the Utah Pioneers, Morgan Chapter. He will bring with him Darron Bradford, an internationally known instrumentalist. Bradford plays 96 different instruments.
“He is an incredible woodwind artist,” says Miner. “With his instruments we have such a marvelous array of sounds.” Bradford has been performing with Miner for the past four years and audiences seem to get a real kick out of their musical styles.
The pair will take requests from the audience—ANYTHING THE AUDIENCE REQUESTS, THIS PAIR CAN PLAY. And they do it with power and grace.
Bradford’s instrumental repertoire includes all five saxophones—soprano, alto, tenor, baritone and bass. Other instruments include the Irish penny whistle, Chinese flutes, and pianos and organs.
“You never can get enough of these instruments; hopefully our music fits that romantic, peaceful, relaxing kind of mode,” says Miner.
The concert is being hosted to provide scholarship money for Morgan High School and other SUP causes. The SUP hopes to raise $9,000 for Morgan student scholarships. The organization is responsible for this and a host of trail markers and remembrances of our pioneer heritage.
We invite all to come and enjoy the evening. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for youth between the ages of 8 and 18. Tickets may be purchased at the door, or from any SUP member. They are also available at Paul Dickson’s Barber Shop. Paul is president of the Morgan Chapter.
