Mike Lang at the May 17 Salon

“We are in the presence of genius.  If Bach were alive today, he would be Mike Lang,” said Ann Ehrenclou, referring to both men’s skills as great improvisors.

Mike spent several decades as one of the premiere musical talents in Los Angeles.  He is both a freelance jazz musician and sought-after studio artist, with a career spanning records, motion pictures and television.  A three-time winner of the MVP Grammy Award and recipient of numerous gold records, Mike is conversant with every possible music idiom and form, including jazz, classical, pop and R&B.

He will be appearing at the Catalina Jazz Club at 6725 W. Sunset Blvd, Hollywood, on Tuesday June 26 at 8:00 pm.  For more on his amazing accomplishments, click here

Many thanks to Kei Benoit for arranging outstanding musical programs this year, to Carole La Caze for sharing her stunning home, to Denise Clement for these top-notch photos.

March Salon with Boglarka Kiss and Robert Edward Thies

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Boglarka Kiss on flute and Robert Edward Thies on piano performed works by Schumann, J.S. Bach, Szervanszky, and Poulenc.  Kiss, a native Hungarian, strives to introduce American works not widely known in Europe, and is regularly featured on Hungarian National Radio.  She is on the faculty of Pasadena City College and is a professor of flute and artist-in-residence at Blue Lake Fine Art Camp in Michigan.

Robert, a native son from Palos Verdes, won the Gold Medal in 1995 at the Second International Prokofiev Competition in St. Petersburg, Russia, and became the only American to win a Russian competition since Van Cliburn’s famed triumph in Moscow in 1958.  Thies is a dedicated chamber musician, performs with orchestras worldwide, and works in Los Angeles with top film composers.  Following the performance, Robert and Boglarka charmed us with stories of their romance and musical collaboration as husband and wife.

Thank you to Jacquie Glass for sharing her stunning home, to Hazel Lord and Marge Schmit for hospitality, and to Britton Weber and our 2012 Provisional class of Wanda Dalcin, Britt Huff, Pilar Simmons, and Patricia Zelt for a warm welcome.

Veteran Music Mobile docents Barbara Hart, Yvonne Tanelian, and Marian Duntley held the third graders at Silver Spur Elementary spellbound at the Demonstration session on February 15. New and returning docents were able to freshen their presentation skills, and get hands-on practice in the initial setup and stowing the van after the session. We have a busy season ahead with presentations every school-day through March 16.
