Viscount Thurston began piano studies at age 7. At his first public performance at age 17, he played Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No. 3 in Denver, Colorado with the Brico Symphony led by his teacher, Antonia Brico (also Judy Collins piano teacher). He gave his debut solo recital at Denver's Phipps Auditorium in 1973. As a winner of the Ohio State University's graduate student concerto competition, Viscount performed Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1 with the university orchestra. He completed his Doctor of Musical Arts degree in 1984.
Viscount has worked with the FAA in leadership development since 1985, raising four children with his wife, Vickie. They also are the proud grandparents of Fiona (5) and Jack (2).
