Season's Opening - This coming Monday, September 12 @ 8 p.m.

Dear friends,

Welcome back to CU for the opening of our 5th season with a program celebrating the 200th birthday year of Franz Liszt, along with music of fellow pianist-composers Rachmaninoff, Ravel, Scriabin and Franck... plus lots of cello, and a Klezmer finale to get us in the mood for the upcoming holidays! 

Joining us will be Eduardo Delgado (piano), Pavel Petrov (piano), Harout Senekeremian (piano), Armen Ksajikian (cello), Indira Rachmatulla (cello), Pepron Pilibossian (piano), Leo Chelyapov (clarinet) and Jordan Charnofsky (guitar).

Classical Underground Showcase:

An illustrious group of some of the top realist figure painters in the nation today gathered once again in the Classical Underground stronghold of Alexey's "Grand Atelier" to welcome the towering figure of the movement - legendary painter Richard Schmid. To say that we had fun would be an unforgivable understatement, as two full days of continuous celebration of our beloved art form armed with paints and brushes, food and booze, ideas and conversation were what the spirit of ART is all about. 

On the second day in a smaller group we got to paint a wonderful musician -- one of Classical Underground favorites, soprano Oxana Senina -- with her staggering beauty perfectly reflecting the beauty of her singing, as anyone who visited CU's summer excursion to Levitt Pavilion would attest.  

Music and Painting in their inseparable unity make ART rule in our turbulent world - this is what I call NOVOREALISM.

In ART we trust!
