Syme then traveled east to Silva Music Studios near Atlanta on May 9 where students enjoyed both his playing on all three brands and an in-depth discussion. Next stop was Nashville, where on May 10 Syme participated in a student recital at the historic Franklin Theatre. The following night, Syme appeared at Miller Piano Specialists where his repertoire included a stand-out version of Queen’s iconic Bohemian Rapsody on a Kayserburg KA275 concert grand.
