Two Piano Extravaganza

Sparkill Concert Series of Union Arts Center is very happy to invite you to this true two-piano extravaganza! Three Pianists + Two Pianos = A lot of great music.
Whether you are an opera lover or a ballet fan, there is something here for everyone. For this event, Vassily and Oxana invited a very special friend and colleague, also a Juilliard graduate, Natalia Lavrova, to play part of the program dedicated to ballet. Vassily and Oxana will be responsible for the opera transcriptions.
– Masking and socially distanced seating will be in place.
**Union Arts Center is now the home of Roost Restaurant, a casual American bistro providing elevated fare and an inventive cocktail list.
