(KSL News) Brigham Young University is preparing to honor a long-time faculty member.

Reid Nibley was the official pianist for the Utah Symphony for 10 years, where he performed 23 different piano concertos in 30 performances. He was also a faculty member at the University of Utah, BYU, the University of Michigan, and USC.

Efforts are now underway to create a scholarship at BYU to recognize Nibley's contributions to music. "Our object is to honor Reid Nibley and establish a scholarship in his name so we can continue his legacy here at BYU," explained Richard Anderson, member of the BYU music faculty.
