Pleyel Piano Fundraiser
July 9, 2015 7:00PM-9:30PM
The Scarab Club invites you to Pianists, Pleyel and Party Two!! Join us for an evening of great music, food and fun in the lounge gallery of Detroit’s historic Scarab Club on Thursday, July 9th. The first set begins at 7 pm and the second starts at 8:30 pm.
The Scarab Club’s Pleyel piano is the star of the event! Hear beautiful music and help raise money for the continued care and maintenance of this historic French instrument built around the 1870s. This is the same make of piano that was the favorite of Frederic Chopin, Saint-Saens, Ravel and other famous pianists throughout their careers! Founded in 1807, the Pleyel Company recently ended its 200 year history of making outstanding hand-built pianos, when it closed its doors in 2013.
The Scarab Club is extremely lucky that a very generous music and art lover decided to donate this instrument to the Club in 2014. Join us to hear pianists Mary Siciliano, Jean Schneider, Linette Popoff-Parks, Zhihua Tang as well as clarinetist Brian Bowman, violinists Velda Kelly, Hai Xin Wu and Jack Robbins, and cellist Nadine Deleury performing music from Handel to Schumann and Weinberg.
Delicious foods and drinks will be served between the two concerts.
The fee for one set is $25 and $40 for both, and of course any extra donation will be greatly appreciated!
Just call the Scarab Club at 313 831 1250. Tell your friends - this will be a great way to introduce them to the Club and to chamber music.
