|Library concert to feature Sheeran, Shimoni on January 10|
Concordia Parish Library and The Piatigorsky Foundation will present a concert featuring two outstanding Piatigorsky Foundation artists: Raquela Sheeran, soprano and David Shimoni, pianist, on Thursday, January 10, 2008 at 7 p.m. Concordia Bank & Trust Co. in Vidalia.
For over 17 years, The Piatigorsky Foundation's commitment to artistic excellence and public outreach has fascinated many avid concert goers, as well as curious first-timers. It is this combination of complimentary access, flamboyant performances, and human warmth that makes Piatigorsky Foundation concerts so appealing to diverse audiences.
Last year, the Foundation presented a tour of nine concerts in South Louisiana reaching over 730 people in Metairie, Lafayette, Abbeville, and New Orleans. This year The Piatigorsky Foundation aims to reach hundreds of people across South Louisiana to increase awareness and appreciation of classical music in communities throughout the state.
As an active performer of opera, recital and concert repertoire, North American born soprano Raquela Sheeran has performed extensively throughout the United States and Europe. Ms. Sheeran has performed with Central City Opera, Chautauqua Opera, Deutsche Opera Berlin, Deutsche Staatsoper Berlin, Giessen Theater, Mannheim Theater, Chamber Opera Vienna, Graz Opera, Teatro Verdi in Sassari, Sardinia, Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona, New Israeli Opera in Tel Aviv and with the Glyndebourne Opera Festival in England.
She has been featured in concerts and recitals throughout Spain, Italy, Germany, Austria, Israel, and in the United States in North Carolina, Oklahoma, Maryland, Washington State, Washington D.C., New York, Pennsylvania, California, Louisiana, Texas, Rhode Island, Colorado, New Jersey and Florida. Ms. Sheeran was a winner of numerous national and international vocal competitions.
A native of Philadelphia, Penn., of Moroccan-Israeli descent, she earned a Bachelor of Music Degree from the Esther Boyer College of Music at Temple University, a Master of Music Degree from the Manhattan School of Music in vocal performance, and completed her training as a young artist at The Juilliard School Opera Center.
Pianist David Shimoni enjoys an active career as both a soloist and a collaborative artist. His 2007-2008 engagements include recitals on the Dame Myra Hess Series in Chicago; the Artists Series of Sarasota; at the Dallas Museum of Art with Southeastern Festival of Song; and in Minnesota and Louisiana for The Piatigorsky Foundation.
In previous seasons, Mr. Shimoni has appeared in New York's We'll Recital Hall, Alice Tully Hall, 92nd St. Y, and the Museum of Modern Art, as well as in Los Angeles, Cincinnati, New Orleans, and Pittsburgh. He has been a guest artist at The Chautauqua, Brevard, and Foothills Music Festivals, and a soloist with the International Chamber Ensemble of Rome and Chappaqua Orchestra.
Born in Chapel Hill, NC, Mr. Shimoni attended the North Carolina School of the Arts during high school and earned a Bachelor of Arts in biology from Swarthmore College. He subsequently received the Vladimir Horowitz Scholarship to study at The Juilliard School, where he obtained masters degrees in both solo and collaborative performance.
Evan Drachman established The Piatigorsky Foundation in 1990 in honor of his grandfather Gregor Piatigorsky. Piatigorsky deeply believed in the healing and inspiration power of classical music. He once said, "Music makes life better. Music is a necessity. It is rich. It is imaginative. It is magnificent. And it is for everyone".
Once again Concordia Parish Library is pleased to bring this performance to the Miss-Lou. As always, the performances are free and open to the public. Concordia Bank offers you a beautiful lobby with great acoustics.
