UMLAUF’s “The Classical Garden” — May 11

The UMLAUF Sculpture Garden & Museum on Thursday, May 11, 6-9 p.m., hosts a spring installment of “The Classical Garden,” an elegant evening at the UMLAUF where guests experience musical performance in nature in the beautiful UMLAUF’s sculpture-filled setting.

The Spring 2017 performance will feature Chen Guang, 22, a winner of the 2016 Olga Kern International Piano Competition, on tour from China and Italy. Winner also of the Scriabin Prize and the Rome Prize, and numerous other internationally-renowned competitions, Guang combines his extraordinary technical capacity with a profound and mature musical sensibility and an exceptional on-stage charisma. Numerous concert associations of Europe, America, and Asia have hosted him both in recitals and with orchestras performing programs ranging from William Byrd to Ligeti to modern-day composers.

This world-class musician will perform an intimate outdoor concert on the UMLAUF terrace for 200 guests followed by a private sponsor dinner. Sponsor, VIP and $35 general admission tickets are available online at http://www.umlaufsculpture.org/classical-garden-1

Support for The Classical Garden reinforces the UMLAUF’s mission to exhibit the work of Charles Umlauf, his influences, and other contemporary sculptors in a natural setting, and provides educational experiences that encourage appreciation of sculpture.
