PS21 Will Celebrate Chatham’s 150th Birthday w/ a Piano Concert, May 4

PS21: Performance Spaces for the 21st Century, will celebrate Chatham’s 150th Birthday with a piano concert which will also inaugurate the theaters newly acquired Steinway D Piano. The diverse program will feature four longtime residents of the Chatham community; Lincoln Mayorga, Gili Melamed-Lev, David Smith and Uel Wade.

World-renowned pianist, recording artist, and composer Lincoln Mayorga will bring his personal passion for Chopin to the celebration “I consider Chopin my ‘desert island composer! If I had to choose the music of just one composer to take with me on a desert island, it would be Chopin. He cared for no other instrument the way he loved and identified with the piano.”

Gili Melamed-Lev and Mark Evans (The Lev-Evans Duo) will be performing light, humorous and inspiring musical works for piano four-hands—two players on one piano—by Brahms, Bizet, Poulenc, Pärt, and Fauré. “We’re thrilled to be part of this celebration and to support this new state-of-the-art venue,” said Gili Melamed-Lev.

In what promises to be a colorful and dramatic evening David Smith is looking forward to realizing the nine-foot Steinway concert grand’s specific potential for listeners. “First and foremost, I think of this concert as an acoustic experience, at a time when so many experiences are digital,” said Smith. “The vibrations of such an instrument move the listener in ways not otherwise possible.”

“Do I want to sit at a beautiful, big, black, Steinway monster and share some of my favorite genius-composers with a bunch of close-listening people?” asked Uel Wade rhetorically. “I think so! Thank goodness music is one of PS21’s many gifts to our community.”
