InConcert Sierra: Pianists and pop-up dinners

PIANIST SAM HAYWOOD, WHO performed alongside renowned violinist Joshua Bell last fall at InConcert Sierra, is returning on April 30. “Joshua Bell may have found his match in Haywood who, though seated, equals him in emoting the music at hand,” wrote The Washington Post.

Haywood will perform at the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Grass Valley. The program includes Schubert, Impromptus D899, Nos 3,4; Beethoven, Sonata quasi una fantasia Op 27 No 2 ‘Moonlight’; Villa-Lobos, selection from Prole do Bebe Book 1 (The Dolls); Mendelssohn, Rondo Capriccioso; Sam Haywood, The Other Side, and Chopin, Scherzo No 2 in B flat minor Op 31, Nocturne Op 27, No 2 in D flat, and Polonaise in A flat Op, 53.

Pop-up Dinner

InConcert Sierra is hosting a “Taste of Classics” pop-up dinner on June 16-17 with Argentian Chef Pablo Ranea and sous chef and jazz singer Aljandro Cohen.

Pablo and Alejandro preside over a traveling kitchen of unique experiences. Friends gather around a table to enjoy the one-of-a-kind experience of the aromas, tastes and textures of Argentinian and Latin American cooking; its wines, history, and enchantment.

Aljandro and InConcert artistic director Ken Hardin will entertain the dinner guests. For more on “pop up” dinners, chef’s table and supper clubs—a theme for this issue—visit SierraCulture.com.
