Valentine's Piano Concert

Featuring Pianist Mark Valenti
Sunday, February 13, 2022  - 3 pm

The Floyd Center for the Arts, in partnership with Virginia’s Blue Ridge Music Festival, will present a Valentine’s Piano Concert on Sunday, February 13th, beginning at 3 pm. Share an evening of romantic music with your special valentine! This first concert in the 2022 Concert Series will feature Pianist Mark Valenti, as he delivers compositions by Franz Schubert, Darius Milhaud, Sergei Rachmaninoff, and Claude Debussy.

 

A classically trained musician, Mr. Valenti has performed in France, Belgium, Hungary and Luxembourg as well as for former First Lady Barbara Bush in Washington, D.C. His music has aired live on WFMT classical radio.

 

The evening's musical journey is set to begin with Sonata in A Major by Franz Schubert, a work of pure lyricism, with gentle shifts from major to minor, light to shade. The journey will complete with a rendition of Claude Debussy’s L'isle Joyeuse, an exotic, quixotic adventure replete with a musical depiction of wind, surf, and sand.

After the performance, concertgoers are welcomed to stay for the Valentine's themed reception which follows. The afternoon is sure to draw the magnetism of the heart for all who attend.

 

Concert tickets are $25 in advance, $30 at the door, and $15 for students. Ticket sales are final, and non-refundable except in the event of concert cancellation or rescheduling.

 

To promote Covid safety, masks will be required for both vaccinated and unvaccinated attendees.
