See contact info at bottom – VERY LIMITED SEATING!
We’ve been cooking up virtual and online ways to bring you live music experiences in the wake of our changed world where no large gatherings are permitted, so we cannot have our usual public concert at La Sala this fall. Nevertheless, Andrea Gore (viola and violin), Rebecca Caron (cello), Suzie Schwartz (violin and viola), and Martha Shepp (piano), WILL perform in a hybrid format. We’re very excited to present this to you!
The notion of essential work and essential workers that has been defined in government health orders during the pandemic leaves out the healing and natural uplifting elixir qualities of the arts. The direct experience of art, creativity, and imagination in times when most activities are virtual and individualized is truly essential. Puppet Theatre los Titiriteros says, “we believe in the necessity of finding new ways to reach out, to be active, inspire…” and we too want to encourage reflection, grieving for what is lost, and re-creating through creative response, in a beautiful setting. (Your caring practice of your own emotional health is a good way to take care of others, too.)
For this hybrid presentation, we will provide up to 10 socially distanced seats out in La Sala’s garden, in the shade. From there, through open windows, you can experience the concert: it can be easily heard and enjoyed, even seen, somewhat! You’ll experience
- four pieces of live music (Mendelssoh, Mahler, Fauré, and Leclair)
- a dance interpretation of the Mahler from La Sala
ballet teacher Tuesday Faust
- poetic interludes between pieces, and
- an optional exercise for exploring and reflecting. You can bring your
- own meditative tools (journal, writing or drawing implements) and we will provide a series of mindfulness inquiries pertaining to each of the four live musical pieces being presented at the concert.
Tea will be provided too.
A video recording will be made of this concert and it will appear on YouTube.
