Classical Concert: Young-Ah Tak, piano
Sunday, June 9, 2019
With her “thrilling blend of fury and finesse” (San Antonio Express-News), Steinway artist Young-Ah Tak takes inspiration from the Crocker’s world-renown collection of German painting to present a concert of German composers that includes Ludwig van Beethoven’s fiery masterpiece Appassionata. A graduate of The Juilliard School, Tak has performed across the globe and is a professor of piano at the State University of New York at Potsdam and an artist-in-residence at Southeastern University in Florida.
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.
Before the performance, at 1 and 2 PM, enjoy a docent-led tour of the Crocker’s permanent collection of 19th-century German painting, to help put the music in context with the art.
