RSVP for October 15th CU - Music and Arts at the studio

Online RSVPs are now closed. 

October Night!  
this coming Monday, the 15th @ 8 p.m. 

Special thanks to our unwavering founding patron
Rand Resources, LLC.      

Our 11th season opener brings an overflowing fall bounty of musical and artistic delights! 

The distinguished Portuguese pianist Filipe Pinto-Ribeiro makes a welcome return to CU with Liszt's Petrarch Sonata #123 and Hungarian Rhapsody #12, and Portuguese composer José Vianna da Motta's Barcarolle and Portuguese Scene Op. #2: Chula do Douro. 

Two sopranos make their CU debuts this evening.  Born in Argentina and now living in L.A., Camila Lima inherited a beautiful singing voice from her famous tenor father, Luis Lima.  Accompanied by pianist Manuel Arellano, Camila will perform "Regnava nel silenzio" from Donizetti 's "Lucia di 
Lammermoor," and "Me llaman la primorosa" from the Zarzuela "El barbero de Sevilla" by Nieto y Giménez.  

Soprano Anastasia Malliaras appears in a duo with her guitar partner Aaron Haas, performing The Divan of Moses Ibn-Ezra by Mario Castelnuovo Tedesco, and Siete Canciónes Populares Españolas by Manuel de Falla. 

Congratulations to the not new to CU but newly married Duo Smirnov! Anton and Angelika (née Fuchs) will perform the delightfully energetic and entertaining "Sketches" by Russian composer Valery Gavrilin. 

CU favorite saxophonist Chika Inoue will perform the Kapustin Saxophone Concerto, accompanied by Anton Smirnov. 

And the reliably wonderful cellist Evgeny Tonkha promises a surprise addition to the program.

Classical Underground is thrilled to showcase a vibrantly strong voice in contemporary figurative art.  Carl's works are striking figurative sagas, filled with narrative drama and witty commentary on a corrupt hedonistic society, oblivious to the dangers it unleashed.  

Carl's complex figurative compositions are rare and important as they bring smart and deadpan contemporary interpretation of classical legacy particularly of the Baroque period.  

Dobsky is the head instructor at Safehouse Atelier in Los Angeles. He has exhibited throughout the U.S. and in Europe. His work can be found in 

both private and public collections including the New Britain Museum of Art and the Seven Bridges Foundation. 

His work has been featured in numerous publications including Hi Fructose Magazine and Huffington Post. He is represented by John Pence Gallery in San Francisco.

Classical Underground Special Showcase: 
Victor Wilde and Bohemian Society SS19 Manifest Collection 

It is a special pleasure to showcase throughout the evening the work of long time Undergrounder and interdisciplinary visionary Victor Wilde with his international progressive post-punk fashion and lifestyle label Bohemian Society.  

All Bohemian Society collections are visual and message driven objects of kinetic and performance art, which made our collaborations with Victor over the years quite natural.   

Bohemian Society just had the distinct honor to be chosen as the Grand Finale of LA Fashion Week at the Petersen Museum with its SS19 collection called Manifest, and it's a special privilege for me to collaborate with Victor again on it.  Using the runway of LA Fashion Week as public art, I will unveil a new peace campaign designed by my newly founded company Sculptoglyph.  

Enjoy our unique camaraderie of art forms that shall and will affect our deeply troubled world.


 As always - bring your spirits, food and drink for you and your friends to enjoy.
