He went on to become the Michael Jordan of classical masters like Mozart and Beethoven. The Bay Area resident won a Grammy Award in 2008; the Steinway Society of the Bay Area presents Ohlsson performing a program that includes works by Beethoven and Alexander Scriabin.

GARRICK OHLSSON performs on Sunday (Oct. 12) at 7pm at McAfee Performing Arts and Lecture Center, Saratoga High School, 20300 Herriman Ave., Saratoga. (408.998.TIXS)
