Great weekend to get out if you're looking for some art, also the Siouxland Coffee Festival gets underway at the Sioux City Convention Center another fine performance for the Morningside College Piano Recital Series and Watermelon Slim and his band go to work at Vangarde Arts.
Cultural Continuum returns after a bit of a layoff and it's Cinco de Mayo this week. Also Watermelon Slim returns to Vangarde and Sioux City Chamber Music Association wraps up the year with a look ahead to a Carnegie Hall concert with a couple of gents with Sioux City ties.
Alexander Scriabin was one of the great symbolist composers of the 20th century. His work was shaped by his mystical beliefs, which he thought would bring the world to a new Nirvana, enducing a state of mystic rapture. Pianist Arthur Greene will perform a selection of Scriabin’s works this Sunday in Eppley auditorium. The recital will be set in darkness with projected images complimenting the music. Morningside Piano Recital Series director, Jim March, says this presentation is well suited to the composer.
