Famed New York pianist Amber Yiu-Hsuan Liao returns to the Crocker to perform works by Czech composer Leos Janacek and others in celebration of the exhibition Testament of the Spirit: Paintings by Eduardo Carrillo. Like Carrillo, whose cultural identity played a large role in his art, Janacek took inspiration from his native land and often created works based on traditional folk melodies. Liao is the winner of numerous piano competitions and is noted for her elegant technique. Her last concert at the Crocker was sold out, so be sure to reserve your tickets in advance.

For more than 50 years, the Crocker has proudly presented its Classical Concert Series, a monthly concert featuring the finest musicians and singers from around the region and across the world. Performances are 60 minute concerts with no intermission and draw a connection to the art on view at the Museum and offer audiences a chance to hear a variety of classical music, from Baroque to contemporary. Performers are selected by the Crocker’s Classical Concert Music Board based on experience, quality of proposed program, and, most importantly, talent and musicianship. Space is limited and advance registration is recommended.

In advance of the Classical Concert, enjoy a docent-led tour of select works from the exhibition Testament of the Spirit: Paintings by Eduardo Carrillo, as well works by Eastern European artists in the Crocker’s permanent collection, to help put the music in context with the art. Prelude Tours are open to all visitors.
