Come out and celebrate with Lara Downes and friends as her newest Sony Masterworks album is released March 2019. "Holes in the Sky" is a collection of music written and performed by women in support of women's rights and empowerment, and a portion of the proceeds from this event will support the Los Angeles Downtown Women's Center
Featuring special guest Hila Plitmann, this concert will include music by Janis Ian, Sharon Farber, Georgia Stitt, Eve Beglarian, Paola Prestini and other pioneering female composers.
Lara Downes is among the foremost American pianists of her generation, an iconoclast dedicated to expanding the resonance and relevance of live music for diverse audiences. A trailblazer on and off-stage, she follows a musical road map that seeks inspiration from the legacies of history, family, and collective memory. Downes’ playing has been called “ravishing” by Fanfare Magazine, "luscious, moody and dreamy” by The New York Times, and "addicting" by The Huffington Post. As a chart-topping recording artist, a powerfully charismatic performer, a curator and taste-maker, Downes is recognized as a cultural visionary on the national arts scene.
Thank you Sony Masterworks, Yamaha Artist Services, Tsingtao, Cadenza Artists, and COMUNITYmade for helping make this night possible.
