Dear San Francisco Family,
I would like to invite you to my upcoming concert on Friday June 14 (doors open at 6:30pm, music begins at 7pm) at LUMINA SF, 2nd floor lounge (201 Folsom St). This will be an intimate, all-Rachmaninov piano solo program.
Rachmaninov’s music has a profound sense of longing and soulful romanticism which I am very excited to share with you. Throughout the evening I will include striking aspects of Rachmaninov’s life which greatly influenced his music. The piano is a Steinway Grand ideal for Rachmaninov’s music. Please note that it will be a rich and powerful sound, overall more voluminous and voluptuous then the average program. If you are sensitive to big romantic textures, well let’s just say you have been fairly warned! This can only be done properly on a Steinway Grand Piano.
In the coming months I will be applying to renew my working visa for another 3 years. I have been privileged to be a part of the San Francisco community for the past 5 years which would not have been possible without your support. My plan is to stay and continue shining my artistic light here in the Bay Area for another 3 years and beyond. At the end of the concert we will be accepting donations which will go towards covering the cost of my visa’s legal and governmental fees (total $5000). Your support means a lot to me and I look forward to an incredible evening of music.
