This April 4th, Art of Élan continues to push the boundaries of classical music by bringing its exciting and innovative one-hour concerts to North County audiences, specifically to Lux Art Institute in Encinitas. This will be the first time the critically acclaimed organization will present in North County.
Art of Élan's regular reason concerts have been performed at The San Diego Museum of Art for the past five years. This concert at Lux continues a commitment from Art of Élan's artistic directors Kate Hatmaker (violinist with the San Diego Symphony) and Demarre McGill (principal flutist with the Seattle Symphony) to refresh the face of classical music and bring it directly to new and diverse audiences.
The one-hour show at Lux will include highlights from recent Art of Élan seasons, featuring Demarre McGill on flute, along with works by NYC composer LJOVA and Mexican composer Arturo Marquez. The concert will also be paired with an opportunity to view the pointillist creations of Lux resident artist James Chronister and will allow concertgoers to mingle with the musicians at a special pre-concert reception.
