First United Methodist Church Presents the Piatigorsky Foundation
Trinity Standard -


The United Methodist Women of First United Methodist Church of Trinity are sponsoring the Piatigorsky Foundation on Tuesday, December 5 at 7 PM. Evan Drachman plays the cello and Richard Dowling the piano in a one-hour concert. Since 1990, The Piatigorsky Foundation has presented more than 3,775 performances, introducing the joy of live classical music in communities throughout the country. Our artists play for audiences including seniors, schoolchildren, the economically disadvantaged, and those living in geographically remote areas. They differ from traditional arts organizations in that they perform in non-traditional venues and present music in a highly communicative format that is geared to each particular audience. Piatigorsky Foundation musicians are chosen for their artistry and ability to engage audiences through lively discussion. In performances that are both entertaining and informative, the artists share anecdotes and insights into the works they will perform. The hour-long concerts take place in informal settings including retirement communities, schools, churches, synagogues, hospitals, workplaces, libraries and community centers . . . virtually anywhere people gather. By bringing musicians into familiar, intimate surroundings and creating a lively concert format, they make classical music accessible to a diverse and often uninitiated population. Program goals • Enrich community life by bringing extraordinary musical talent to underserved audiences • Create a broader base for the art form by developing new audiences • Offer meaningful performance opportunities for established and emerging artists • Make live classical music an integral part of everyday life for communities across the United States.
