SALT LAKE CITY — He might’ve been the youngest performer Tuesday night, but that didn’t put 12-year-old Ezekiel Sokoloff at any sort of disadvantage. In fact, the 5-foot violinist had the privilege of kicking off the 59th annual Salute to Youth concert with the Utah Symphony.
While that could be a daunting task for many performers, Ezekiel proved to be up to the challenge.
“I actually wasn’t nervous,” he told the Deseret News, one of the annual event’s sponsors, backstage following his performance. “I just try to let the muscle memory take over so I don’t really think too much.”
