An Evening of Music & Painting: Misha Dacic (Pianist) & Vladimir Markovic (Painter) – Sunday, May 19, 2013 at 7:45 PM

The Enigma of Creativity

Join us for an exquisite world premiere for one show only of an interactive evening of music and live painting.

This performance echoes the grand traditions of the Romantic Period where pianists were inspired by the painting of great masters – except that this evening, the music of great masters will inspire the art. A pianist of extraordinary power, Misha Dacic, will inspire the renowned muralist, Vladimir Markovic to produce a painting – live on stage, as Dacic performs the mystical music of Scriabin and Mompou’s most beautiful, elusive, simple and mystical music of Evaporation.

To round out the Festival experience, Frank Cooper, Musicology Research Professor at University of Miami’s Frost School of Music, has been named “Lecturer in Residence” and will be on hand to provide a dynamic intellectual perspective on the artists’ choice of repertoire.
