PRLog - Jun. 5, 2011 - LOGAN, Utah -- If you were unable to attend the sold out April, May and June performances of "Matinée Enchantée" at the Thatcher-Young Mansion , deceptionist Richard Hatch, violinist Rosemary Hatch and their son, pianist Jonathan Hatch, will present highlights from these programs as part of the Noon Concert Series in the auditorium of Logan High School on Thursday, June 16th. This 45 minute program will feature music of Saint-Saëns, Bach, Miyagi and Kreisler and magic created by Robert-Houdin, Hecklau, Vernon and Punx, among others. A unique feature of the program is the ensemble aspect with magic and music performed simultaneously. This performance is free and open to the public.
