Classical Concert: Jason Sia
Sunday, April 14, 2019
We are delighted to welcome Jason Sia, a Sacramento native and rising star, back to the Crocker for a dazzling performance to honor the exhibition The Roaming Eye: International Street Photography from the Ramer Collection. Sia’s masterful musicianship and stunning virtuosity will bring musical stories to life, including solo masterworks like Hoedown from Aaron Copland’s Rodeo and selections from George Gershwin’s well-loved American Songbook. The program will also include the monumental Grand Piano Sonata in F minor, Opus 14 (Concerto Without Orchestra) by Schumann, and other favorite works by Romantic and Impressionistic composers Chopin, Ravel, Schubert, Liszt, and Debussy.
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 The Roaming Eye: International Street Photography from the Ramer Collection, to help put the music in context with the art. Prelude Tours are open to all visitors.
