San Diego Arts 2017: Classical Music

Article by: Ken Herman, San Diego Story

For the past 10 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, 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.
