Friends of great music during an election year,
The last concert was a treat for all of our ears and eyes! A firework of pianistic mastery and true artistry paired with live painting by Jamie Kalvestran. While our good friend Clarice Assad has returned to her New York City domicile, she truly made an impact during her two month stay in the Twin Cities. If you are curious what she´s been up to, view this amazing video. It documents her work with girls at a St. Paul Public school in March.
