Cellist and Pianist to Perform in Mason
Wednesday, February 5, 2014 • Posted February 5, 2014

The Mason County, M. Beven Eckert Memorial Library is proudly sponsoring a special concert featuring cellist Evan Drachman, and pianist Jeffrey Grossman from the Piatigorsky Foundation.

The concert will be held on Friday, February 7, at 6:30 P.M. at the First United Methodist Church. Admission is free.

Mr. Drachman is the Founder and Artistic Director of The Piatigorsky Foundation. The Foundation is a non-profit organization whose mission is to make live classical music part of the fabric of everyday life for communities throughout the United States. It was established in 1990 by Mr. Drachman, grandson of the great Russian cellist Gregor Piatigorsky (1903-1976), who performed not only in the world’s great concert halls but also in cities, towns, and villages all over the U. S.

The Foundation carries on his legacy in the belief that, as Piatigorsky said, “Music makes life better. Music is neither a luxury nor a frill—it is a necessity! It is rich. It is imaginative. And it is for everyone.” Please come and be inspired by this live, one-hour concert featuring two fine artists.
