Three award-winning classical musicians will inaugurate a new National YoungArt Foundation's type of programming when they perform as part of "Yellow Lounge," an event designed to broaden the audience for classical music by presenting emerging musicians in a classics-meets-club atmosphere.
The program, which will be held this Friday night, Nov. 22, will feature classical guitar sensation Milos Karadaglic, who will perform along with award-winning classical musicians Andrea Jarrett, a violinist, and cellist Peter Eom. Julie Amacher, host of America Public Media's "New Classical Tracks," will serve as emcee.
"Yellow Lounge at YoungArts" is the first of many public programs we will launch over the next years to enliven our campus, support emerging artists and introduce the public to the next generation of American artists," said Paul T. Lehr, president and CEO of the organization.
Karadaglic, who is known as "Milos," came to international attention in 2011 with his debut album "Mediterraneo." The album topped classical charts around the world, became an international best-selling sensation and earned him Gramophone's prestigious "Young Artist of the Year" award. Jarrett and Eom are YoungArts Winners and also U.S. Presidential Scholars in the Art.
The event will take place in the building's seventh floor lounge, located in the famous Bacardi Tower and Museum complex, which now houses YoungArts. The lounge, created by world-famous architect Frank Gehry features 360-degree projection capability and spectacular views of Biscayne Bay.
Originally born out of the Berlin/European club scene, "Yellow Lounge" is designed to broaden the audience for classical music by presenting a new generation of exciting artists who come from a classical tradition but transcend musical and cultural boundaries. The event is presented by YoungArts in partnership with Universal Music Classics and Classical South Florida.
Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for student.
