Need a break for an hour to just listen to pretty things?  Come enjoy this 1-hour program of music by impressionist era composer Claude Debussy and modern minimalist Philip Glass that will take you away to an enchanting, magical and tranquil place.  Unlike your typical piano recital the audience is encouraged to walk around the room and experience photographs created specifically for this concert by artist Elisa Ferrari (www.elisaferrari.com).  In addition, two video art pieces , created by artists Katrina Schaffer and Melodie Myers, will accompany the Philip Glass solos.

Seating will also be available.  Families with children are encouraged to attend.

Suggested donation at the door, all proceeds will go towards two organizations helping to provide high quality arts education in our area, Piedmont PAINTS and  Oakland School for the Arts.
