On Saturday evening, December 12, the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County will present a special edition of “The Parlor Series,” the popular monthly concert series in Lake Worth that features virtuoso violinist Gareth Johnson and an eclectic roster of musical accompanists.
The December 12 performance, “A Classical Conquest at the Cultural Council,” will feature Johnson and pianist Dr. Robin Arrigo. Johnson and Arrigo will perform the works of Sarasate, Kreisler and others at the Cultural Council’s Robert M. Montgomery, Jr. building in downtown Lake Worth. Doors open at 7 p.m., with performances and Q&A sessions beginning at 7:30 p.m. Characteristic of “The Parlor Series,” the audience gets to ask questions about the composers, artists performing and compositions being played. Admission is $25; drinks and hors d’oeuvres are included. For tickets, please call (203) 339-5725.
Johnson, who travels the world as a soloist, master teacher, educator, dedicated composer and arranger of contemporary, classical, new age and hip-hop music, founded “The Parlor Series” to showcase and develop artistic talent. The program is a cultural fusion of musical genres featuring both emerging and world-renowned artists. In-the-know locals frequent this intimate series, which is growing in popularity as a platform for creative musical talent in The Palm Beaches.
Johnson was an inaugural member of the Cultural Council’s Musician Services Program, a forum for musicians and groups who actively perform, produce or record in Palm Beach County. Musician member benefits range from networking and promotional opportunities to professional discounts. Click here for details about the Council’s Musician Services program.
