Union Arts Center
2 Union St, Sparkill, NY 10976
Tickets: $25 in advance/$30 at door/$10 students

Frederic Chiu is an internationally recognized classical pianist, having played in halls from Berlin to Tokyo to Lincoln and Kennedy Centers. He's a longtime Yamaha artist who performs a unique combination of iconic favorites and groundbreaking newer music for the piano.

The NY Times: “Mr. Chiu offers richly colored, fiery interpretations of both books of Debussy's “Images,” the rippling figurations articulated with a crystalline touch, as well as performances of "Clair de Lune" and "Ręverie." There are echoes of Debussy in "Nostalgia," "Love Song of Kangdin" and the tumultuous "Blue Flower" by Gao Ping, a Chinese composer-pianist based in New Zealand.

Martha Mooke, composer/electro-acoustic violist

No Ordinary Window
Time: 2:00 pm
Union Arts Center
2 Union St, Sparkill, NY 10976
Tickets: $20 in advance/$25 at door/$10 students

NO ORDINARY WINDOW, by groundbreaking Electro-acoustic violist/composer Martha Mooke is her new CD/performance experience of highly evocative, provocative and emotion driven music. It is a journey of the illuminating power of music – to the world, to the soul, to the imagination... where music is a window that never closes.

The Journal News: "At the core of the project are rhythmic, meditative soundscapes that explore the potential of her instrument. Mooke says her desire is to encourage people to experience music 'not only with their ears but through their other senses as well, and for their imaginations to be sparked by the sounds that I'm creating and by the environment.'"
