Jon Huntsman’s daughter plays Carnegie Hall

Mary Anne Huntsman, the eldest daughter of former Utah Gov. and GOP presidential hopeful Jon Huntsman, played a piano concert at Carnegie Hall tonight. Late Thursday night, she wrote on Twitter, “Can’t believe I lived my dream tonight!! #carnegiehall.”

Her father was obviously incredibly proud. “My daughter @HuntsmanMame is playing at @CarnegieHall tonight! Doesn’t get much better,” Huntsman gushed earlier in the evening. The program included Chopin and Rachmaninoff.

Mary Anne was humble about the whole thing, writing, “A little lost trying to find my own pre party. #can’tbelate#carnegiehall.”  She posted the photograph below. Even CNN’s Piers Morgan reached out and wished her luck. “Good luck tonight @HuntsmanMame ….this is pretty damn cool,” he wrote. 

The concert, written about last week in U.S. News & World Report, was a benefit for The Peak and Abyss Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing children and adolescents with access to classical music events.
