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.
