Guest Artist Series
In celebration of Arts Month 2021, EPIC (Educational Partnerships Immersive Experience) is pleased to present violinist Ariel Horowitz on Friday, October 15 at 7PM at the Almagre Venue. This concert is part of EPIC’s Guest Artist Series, and will also feature Yukino Miyake on piano, and Sergei Vassiliev clarinet. The evening’s program will include Jessie Montgomery Rhapsody #1, Johannes Brahms Violin Sonata in G, Paul Schoenfeld Trio for Violin, Clarinet and Piano, and Piotr Iliych Tchaikovsky Waltz-Scherzo.
During the first few isolating months of the pandemic, EPIC decided that we needed to bring necessary healing to the community in form of ‘socially distanced with health measures in overdrive’ live concerts. This is how EPIC Community Concerts were born. We had to be very maneuverable and sensitive to the ever changing factors like the weather and health restrictions in order to pull off these events. But we managed and the rewards were more than we could imagine!
We put on unique concerts that you can’t see anywhere else in Colorado Springs. We combine classical music with other genres and art forms to produce a strong visual and interactive component to the performances. We make the best music immersive and accessible to everyone. Our tag line is We will NOT be another “stuffy” classical music series.
By involving national-level masters in collaboration with local stars and partnering with arts and educational institutions, EPIC brings out the best in innovative fine arts performance and propels our community to national prominence.
