Music Mondays - Parallel Intersections

Monday, April 11 @ 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM
TICKETS $40. Link to purchase: Click here
Join Strongin Collection and Boulanger Initiative for the second performance of its Music Mondays series featuring the duo Parallel Intersections. The sounds of the tropical steelpan elegantly punctuates the bold, ethereal lilt of the Chinese dulcimer, creating an absolutely transcendent soundscape. Parallel Intersections goes beyond the boundaries of each instrument, engaging in musical creations that are based on the exploration of commonness and differences. The duo comprises of Josanne Francis on the steelpan and Chao Tian on the Chinese dulcimer who first met as members of Strathmore's Artist in Residence Class of 2018. Both are masters of their respective instruments: Francis made history as the first classical steelpan soloist to perform a concerto at Carnegie Hall, and Tian has been presented with the Wen Hua award-the highest honor given to a Chinese musician. Francis and Tian share a similar background in classical music and are able to merge their unmistakably different cultural backgrounds in Parallel Intersections.

 

Curious About NFTs?
Tuesday, April 26th @ 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM
Local artist Frankie Abralind will explain the pioneering technology that's revolutionizing art (and will soon change the rest of the world). In an interactive and engaging presentation, he'll give the basics on Non-Fungible Tokens, or NFTs, then explain the "utility" behind the ones he's created for his own physical artwork. Participants will have the opportunity to buy an NFT related to the event.

Limited to the first 25 RSVPs.
