Free Kaleidoscope Concert “Bending Toward the Sun”
The Classical Kaleidoscope Concert series will present its third concert of the season on Wednesday, March 2 from 7:00 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. in the Cay Mortenson Auditorium at the Arcadia Public Library. This special program will feature guest author and speaker Leslie Gilbert-Lurie. The Quartet for the End of Time, composed by Olivier Messiaen while he was imprisoned in a Nazi concentration camp will be performed by Michele Zukovsy, clarinet; Paul Stein, violin; Masim Velichkin, cello; and Kevin Fitz-Gerald, piano.
The remarkable book “Bending Toward the Sun” by Leslie Gilbert-Lurie is about her mother’s shattering experience while hiding from the Nazis. It is about the profound love between the mother, daughter and granddaughter and the psychological shadow that shaped their lives.
Following the classical concert, special guest author Leslie Gilbert-Lurie will sign her book “Bending Toward the Sun” available for purchase at the time of the event.
You are also cordially invited to meet and speak with the musicians. Coffee, provided courtesy of Starbucks, and light refreshments will be served. Funded by the Arcadia Public Library Foundation, the concert is free and no reservations are necessary. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Seating is limited, so please come early.
