Alex did an online concert tonight over Zoom with Jason Tonioli (piano) and John Knudson (violin). The concert was streamed from Jason's studio. There was also live audience, but they had decided to sell online tickets as well.

Jason's arrangements are really pretty (those who have listened to his album "Favorite Hymns" with CaraNua know what I'm talking about. John has done a lot of cool things, such as performing at multiple US presidential inaugural balls. And it's always a treat to hear Alex perform.

A few times, Jason decided they should perform songs they hadn't rehearsed (in some cases, songs they'd never even heard before) to keep everyone on their toes. John (violin) had some fantastic ad libs.

Sometimes Jason and John played backing for Alex and sometimes they ran backing tracks for Alex instead.

The video was a little fuzzy, but the sound was reasonably good. It was definitely worth the money for me.

Set List (Alex sang in all songs except for the one's that say "instrumental"):

Atlantic Sky
Isle of Hope
Lullaby for Lindsay (Jason and John instrumental)
Prayer for the Children (Jason and John instrumental)
The Blessing
Broken By Design
Be Good (Jason and John instrumental)

Million Dreams (Jason and John instrumental)
Fields of Gold
Thinking of You (Jason and John instrumental)
Amazing Grace
See Amid the Winter's Snow (Jason and John instrumental)
When September Ends
Going Home

They dropped some hints that Alex would be back in Utah a little later, possibly next year, presumably to record some additional songs, although I got the impression they're also considering some shows together. Jason mentioned they had to get an orchestra. Stay tuned!
