Co-Creation Project II – The Music Inside
Sunday, October 29
Cuesta Performing Arts Center
As a continuation of our Community Novo: Co-Creation Project, Orchestra Novo has connected with Central Coast senior centers serving Alzheimer’s and dementia patients. As part of the patients’ art classes and art therapy, Michael Nowak will present to them Gabriel Faure’s “Pavane,” and they will be guided to draw and paint in response to the music and the feelings and memories it evokes. Their work will then be collected and featured in this concert.
“Every portrait of Beethoven seems to drive home the impression that he was a composer whose music was tempestuous, brooding and muscular. And while that was certainly the case, the masterful Emperor Concerto is proof of the tenderness and beauty that runs like a thread through this great man’s music.” ClassicFM
