in the music of Chopin & the paintings of Delacroix

Online Sunday, May 23 at 5:00 PST

Dear Friends and Supporters of the Distinguished Artists Concert Series,
 
It is with great pleasure that I invite you to join us for a delightful evening, live and online with Chopin specialist, Brian Ganz, acclaimed pianist and a favorite performer on the Distinguished Artists Series.
 
In this one-hour session, Brian performs some of Chopin’s best known and loved compositions. He will then demonstrate how Chopin’s music and the paintings of Eugene Delacroix express the essence of Romanticism and the revolutionary spirit in 19th century Europe. The evening concludes with a stimulating discussion, toast and a short Q & A. So have a glass of your favorite beverage on hand, and join us for this special occasion that will connect us in this new and challenging year.
 
Be sure to mark you calendar for Sunday, May 23 at 5:00 PST.
 
You donations and support are always greatly appreciated and most welcome.
Warmly,
John Orlando
