Remembering Frédéric: A Musical Conversation between Frédéric Chopin and George Sand, a unique evening of theater and music, will be performed by pianist Pamela Howland on Thursday, Oct. 6
Presented by the Friends of the Grosse Pointe Public Library, Remembering Frédéric dramatizes the tortured relationship between the famous Polish composer and the French female writer whose pseudonym was George Sand. The writer’s words form the basis for this musical journey in time interspersed with Howland performing Chopin’s music. In the show, Howland, a gifted pianist, conjures Sand talking to Chopin six years after his death.
Howland is a gifted pianist who breathes life and vitality into classical music for audiences of any age or background. Vivacious, imaginative, sensitive and just a trifle unconventional, Howland is a rare classically trained performing artist who thrives as an entertainer. Using the lecture-recital format she honed in her early days as a professor at Wake Forest University, she makes each performance a musical conversation, fashioned to fit the listening level of her audience. She seeks programs that depart from a traditional classical format so that her audiences leave both educated and entertained, having learned something about themselves as well as the music.
The performance is at 7 p.m. Oct. 6 in the Grosse Pointe Unitarian Church, 17150 Maumee at St. Clair Street in Grosse Pointe. Admission is $20. For reservations, contact the Friends of the Grosse Pointe Public Library at (313) 343-2074 x 204 or email: email@example.com. Proceeds from the program will support the Grosse Pointe Public Library.
