Artist of the day: Elias Phoenix
Elias Phoenix appears to be a typical kid until his fingers touch the keys on a piano. Then, orchestral music rises from the piano and the 7-year-old belies his age by playing likea classically trained adult.
Elias, whose family lives in Brandon, recently entered a contest called the American Protege International Music Talent Competition, and finished second -- meaning that on Saturday, he'll get to go to New York to perform at Carnegie Hall.
