In eager anticipation of the 8th Annual Festival of the Arts Boca set to take place March 6-15, 2014 by the Schmidt Family Centre for the Arts at Mizner Park Amphitheater, an enchanting evening is on the way later this month.
Organizers of the Festival of the Arts Boca will host an exceptional evening on Friday, November 22, 2013 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Mizner Park Cultural Arts Center, 201 Plaza Real in Boca Raton, Florida. It will be an unprecedented introduction of the outstanding line-up of artists and authors that will be appearing at the Festival of the Arts Boca in 2014.
The evening will begin with a cocktail reception and then lead right into the Florida premiere of the award-winning documentary 'I AM NOT A ROCK STAR' as well as a post-film concert featuring the famed pianist, Marika Bournaki. To top the evening off, a Q&A session will take place with the filmmaker, Bobbi Jo Hart.
This is a heartwarming and inspirational film that follows the dramatic coming of age of Juilliard-trained concert pianist, Marika Bournaki. There is a scene that was shot right here in South Florida giving a small bit of fame to our culturally diverse area. The film has toured worldwide festivals and premiered most recently at Lincoln Center in New York and during the 2013 Festival del Sole in Napa.
With unparalleled technical, musical and communication skills, Bournaki is at once, a world class performer, outstanding pianist, vivacious young woman… and the freshest face on the classical music scene. The innovative approach to her art and performance is reflected in her recent collaboration, “Let’s Play", a multi-disciplinary show created and directed by Bobbi Jo Hart with support by cutting-edge and world-renowned multimedia creative shop, Moment Factory. Her role as Ambassador to the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal’s summer event, “A Cool Classical Journey” was an exceptional opportunity to explore new and exciting ways to share her music with the public. Bournaki not only brings distinctive interpretations to favorite standards, she also extends her passion for music by commissioning works by younger composers and collaborating with artists from various fields.
Bournaki is a coveted artist who has performed all over the world from the Krakow Film Festival in Poland to a benefit recital for the Glenn Gould Foundation at New York City's famous Carnegie Hall.
If you have been searching for something culturally rewarding to do on a Saturday evening, this is the opportunity that will satisfy that craving for art, music and the in-between.
