Image for Bela Fleck and Brooklyn RiderBela Fleck and Brooklyn Rider

8:00 pm - 10:00 pm - Great Hall
http://www.valleyperformingartscenter.org/calendar/bela-fleck-and-brooklyn-rider/?utm_source=CSUN&utm_medium=Calendar

Grammy Award-winner Bela Fleck is quite possibly the premier banjo player in the world. He has virtually reinvented the image and the sound of the banjo through a remarkable performing and recording career that has taken him all over the musical map and on a range of solo projects and collaborations. This performance with Brooklyn Rider is a match made in heaven. Brooklyn Rider's desire to use the rich medium of the string quartet as a vehicle for communication across a large span of history, geography and genres fuses perfectly with Bela Fleck's inventive imagination. This is classical music as reinvented and revived by five forward looking musical innovators.

http://www.valleyperformingartscenter.org/calendar/moscow-festival-ballet-chopiniana-and-romeo-and-juliet/?utm_source=CSUN&utm_medium=Calendar

This Valentine's evening the renowned Moscow Festival Ballet brings two of the most romantic classical works to the Valley Performing Arts Center. Often described as a "romantic reverie," Chopiniana portrays a dream-world where ballerinas bathed in moonlight dance around a young poet. The enchanting oeuvre is realized through the music of Chopin and the choreography of Mikhail Fokine. Shakespeare's tragic love story is beautifully danced to Tchaikovsky's majestic score and illuminated with brilliant choreography and radiant costumes in the grand tradition of Russian ballet.

With this project, I want to form a platform that encompasses the entire range of things that I have done over the years, from Bright Size Life to Secret Story, from my group projects to the Orchestrion, and with this incredible group of musicians, Chris Potter, Ben Williams, Antonio Sanchez and Giulio Carmassi, just about anything is possible!"
