Young Artists in Harmony
Art of Élan just concluded its 9th Season Concert Series, Crossing the Divide, at The San Diego Museum of Art, but the music continues. (U-T San Diego Review) This boundary-breaking classical music group is bringing its exciting and innovative one-hour concerts to North County audiences, specifically to the LUX Art Institute in Encinitas.
This concert at Lux will provide an opportunity to enjoy a rare San Diego appearance by Art of Élan co-founder, Demarre McGill. McGill, currently a principal flutist with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, will perform with friends as a special dual celebration of innovation in the arts in Southern California.
For the past 8 years Art of Élan has been pioneering unique chamber music events and bringing the excitement of classical music to diverse audiences. Created by violinist Kate Hatmaker and flutist Demarre McGill, Art of Élan is continually expanding the scope of classical music in San Diego through innovative, one-hour programming in unique performance venues. Its partnerships with The San Diego Museum of Art in Balboa Park, Lux Art Institute in Encinitas, The Glashaus in Barrio Logan, the Malcolm X Library and A Reason To Survive (ARTS) in National City have led to multiple commissions, world premieres, exciting cross-disciplinary productions and enthusiastic, sold-out audiences.
By drawing inspiration from the word élan, which represents momentum, vigor and spirit, Art of Élan continues to engage and energize audiences in new ways.
