The Central California Art Association and Mistlin Gallery are producing a series of fine art cabaret concerts that will begin with a presentation on the life of Clara Schumann on March 9.
The first cabaret concert will feature world class concert pianist, Karolina Syrovatkova, performing “Clara - Woman in the Middle,” a dramatic musical creation in which she engages the audience as 19th century pianist, Clara Schumann, who was also the wife of Robert Schumann and the muse of Johannes Brahms.
Syrovatkova created this drama concert as part of her “Living with the Great Composers” series, an innovative way of experiencing classical music.
Champagne and desserts are included in the cost of admission. Ticket prices are $50 for VIP seating; $30 for general admission and $20 for students. The proceeds from these events will be used to fund CCAA’s cooperative community endeavors, art education programs, and for the development of a Grace Lieberman Young Artist scholarship fund.
Lieberman was a consummate musical and dramatic performer, having starred with all the major theater groups in the Valley. She also was an advocate for the arts in all forms. She served two terms as the director of the Stanislaus Arts Council. Upon her recent passing, she willed a small grant to CCAA. These funds will be used to purchase the items needed to create a performance space within the gallery to accommodate between 100 and 125 persons per performance.
