May 9th Music and the Art in the Studio

Online reservations are now closed.

May Night  
this coming Monday, the 9th @ 8 p.m. 

Music & Arts in the Studio  


For our May Program we welcome the return of the City of Angels Saxophone Quartet, with an exquisite example of what makes this combination so special: the ethereal Lux Aeterna by Latvian composer Rihards Dubra.
Dmitry Rachmanov, our pianist and professor friend from up North (Cal State Northridge, that is), brings a selection of seductive miniatures by Tchaikovsky, Liadov, Liszt, Scriabin, Rachmaninoff and Anton Rubinstein.

We also have a new friend from the South (Cal State Fullerton), Ukrainian violinist Mira Khomik, who makes her CU debut performing Debussy's sonata for violin and piano with Anna Sarkisova.  In addition to being on the CSF faculty, Mira is working on her PhD at UCLA.

From the East (USC!) comes pianist Hung-Tao Lin, who will make his solo CU debut with two of Liszt's Sonetti del Petrarca.
Clarinetist James Hodges arrives from the West (Santa Monica!) with the lively and witty Poulenc Sonata, along with Jasper Jimenez on piano.
And finally, while all roads may lead to Classical Underground, happily our "resident" virtuoso Harout Senekeremian has long been right here with us, this time playing some of the devilishly difficult Fairy Tales for piano by Nikolai Medtner.
 As always - bring your spirits, food and drink for you and your friends to enjoy.

Classical Underground Showcase 

Joseph Todorovitch is one of the bright figures of the new representational expression in contemporary Art.
The body of Joseph's new work shows off the current state of his continuous drive to develop his impressive technical abilities. Exploring the new expressive possibilities in presenting the human figure and expanding its visual language is part of a wider movement of taking the tradition-based approach to the next step.
The technically fluid, expressive tools merging tonality, color and shape - reflecting the perceptional and cognitive developments of our generation - is an inherently contemporary expression of contemporary visual cognition.
We see the emergence of a new stage in developing tools for expression of reality, why I call it Novorealism - a specific stylistic search within our period of visual expression that is only beginning to unfold.
In Joseph's work you have a rare opportunity to glimpse the inner workings of this super-advanced visual lab.  
in ART we trust!
