About the Event
The third exhibition opening of our Modern Art Meets Chamber Music series, Vibrancy, will feature a salon concert performed by The New Asia Chamber Music Society (NACMS). Founded in 2010 by a group of young Asian-American virtuosi, the NACMS has a mission of bringing audiences exciting chamber music performances of the highest caliber and innovation. Musicians of NACMS are prize winners of world-renowned international competitions, praised by The New York Times and The Washington Post, and graduates from America’s most prestigious music schools, including The Juilliard School and the Curtis Institute. As their first in-person performance in New York since the pandemic started in 2020, Vibrancy will feature a celebratory repertoire of works by Beethoven, Caroline Shaw, Piazzolla, Dvorak, and others, ranging from duet to piano quintet. Bringing together musical flavors from around the globe, this program is aimed to enlighten listeners with the richness of various musical traditions.
The artistic highlight of Vibrancy features two creatively and visually inspired female artists: Katherine Maude Thomas
and Sara Sill. Sill’s background in architecture and music is apparent in her work. Nature, which abounds in unexpected yet harmonious patterns, colors, and shapes, is also a frequent source of inspiration. Similarly, Thomas finds inspiration in natural forms, from Earth’s minerals, elements, and geodes, and channels their positive energies through her work. Although seemingly modest in size, their works are rich with numerous layers, depth, and materials within them. They prove to us the notion that grand things can come in small packages, or through vibrant pieces of artistic expression.
