VMF leading off with Anderson & Roe Piano Duo.
Ventura Music Festival announces four new virtually yours concerts, leading off with Anderson & Roe Piano Duo on March 21st. Each is hosted by Artistic Director Nuvi Mehta and presented free-of-charge. Reservations are required.
The line-up is as follows:
Sunday, March 21st 3 pm, Anderson & Roe Piano Duo. Festival favorites Greg Anderson and Elizabeth Joy Roe begin the concert with Stravinsky, pause in the middle to remind us “It’s a wonderful world,” and conclude with tangos and an exuberant tribute to West Side Story. The setting: Live from the Tippet Rise Arts Center in Montana.
Sunday, April 18th 3 pm, Michael Feinstein’s Irving Berlin. Stories, fabulous guest artists and more from pianist-singer Feinstein, the charming and hugely talented “keeper” of the Great American Songbook. The setting: Live from Carnegie Hall.
Sunday, May 16th 3 pm, “Go for Baroque” with Nuvi Mehta and Johann Sebastian Bach. The period 1600-1750 was extraordinary for its soaring cathedrals, art and music, with Baroque composers accounting for 80% of the traditional Western classical music performed today. As the father of Western classical music, Johann Sebastian Bach is the star of this program.
Sunday, June 13th 3 pm, “All that Jazz”. Leaving the deep dive to Ken Burns and his amazing 10-episode “Jazz” series on PBS, VMF plans a sweet, short dive into “America’s music.”. Details soon.
Each program debuts on a Sunday at 3 pm and is available for ‘anytime viewing’ thereafter. No charge thanks to sponsors; reservations are required VenturaMusicFestival.org.
