I’ve recently created a new educational program with my Duo Ephelia partner, Milena Zhivotovskaya. It’s an interactive demonstration where we perform a piece of music and discuss how some of its concepts are also found in visual art while the participants create inspired artwork. We’re calling it From the Stage to the Canvas. On Septemer 18th, Milena and I gave the premiere From the Stage to the Canvas for the Children’s Chorus of Bay Ridge in collaboration with the art teacher at the Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd. The kids learned about Romanticism in both painting and Robert Schumann’s music.
