Timeless Concerts presents "Sergei and the Seasons!" Saturday, Sept. 21, 2019 at the Arlington Museum of Art

Timeless Concerts will be celebrating two famous composers with the first name of Sergei, Sergei Rachmaninoff and Sergei Prokofiev.

Music by Sergei Rachmaninoff was played in the movie "Seven Year Itch", starring Marilyn Monroe, and more recently in movies such as "Somewhere in Time" and "My Best Friend's Wedding." Rachmaninoff not only composed the greatest and most beautiful piano concertos, but also songs. Tenor Don O'Neal LeBlanc will perform some of these songs, and soprano Judith Rodriguez will sing "Vocalise", all accompanied by pianist Dr. Heejung Kang, violinist LeeAnne Chenoweth, and cellist Dr. Sara Birnbaum Hood. Dr. Kang will also perform a piano solo by Rachmaninoff.

The instrumental trio will perform music by the other Sergei, Sergei Prokofiev. They will play his "Romeo and Juliet Suite" and music in chamber music form from his most famous score for ballet. Timeless Concerts will also perform some colorful music that describes the seasons.

There will be a post-concert party as usual with complimentary wine and soft drinks, fruit/cheese/desserts buffet, and pianist Erik Barnes will take your requests. More information is available on the Timeless Concerts website and tickets can be purchased here. Concert begins at 8:00 pm, doors open no earlier than 7:30.

Timeless Concerts Presents a Casual Concert at the Arlington Museum of Art July 20.

Casual night at the museum! Tenors without tuxes! Come as you are; shorts or sundresses, Hawaiian shirts or caftans. The performers will all be casual, too. Come enjoy this different kind of Timeless Concerts evening, at the lower level amphitheater at the Arlington Museum of Art, Saturday, July 20, 2019.

The wonderful must-see Keith Haring exhibit on the main floor gallery will be standing where Timeless Concerts usually places the grand piano and table seating, so the concert had to make some adjustments. They'll be back in the main gallery Sept. 21. If you've been to a concert before, and looked over the iron railing by the back window, then you have seen the stage they'll be using.

Tenors Don O'Neal LeBlanc and Sergio Cepeda, plus soprano Judith Rodriguez, will select their favorite things to sing. There will also be some interesting gypsy-ish pieces for their instrumental trio selections, as well as German classics. There will be a joyful music party as always. Post-concert, Erik Barnes will be the pianist, and his music will be flowing throughout the three levels of the museum, as the lower level is open to the very top. Wine and soft drinks will be served.

Enjoy browsing the exhibit after the concert. Get your tickets soon, as there is less seating than usual.
