Listen, Look, Engage! CAFE Flutes and MCA Artists in Concert

Loading Events

Join us for an exciting afternoon of visual and musical arts. This event invites participants to interact with the artists and musicians to get a close-up look at the creative process.  Tickets are available through Mesa Art Center Box Office –  see below.

CAFE Flutes will perform a variety of musical styles during the first half of this concert in the Piper Repertory Theater.  After intermission, they will perform four pieces of music that connect with a projected art image of four artworks currently on display in the Mesa Contemporary Art (MCA) Museum. Experience the juxtaposition of art with live music.

 Mesa Center for the Arts

After each piece, Arts Advocate JILL BERNSTEIN will lead the audience in a discussion to build meaning, create dialogue, and offer commentary about how artists and composers express their ideas, and how audiences process them.  MCA artists BILL DAMBROVA, ABBEY MESSMER, BOBBY ZOKAITES, and COLLEEN QUIGLEY will be on hand to provide insights about their  creative process.   Following the concert, the audience is invited to tour the MCA Museum with the displaying artists.

This event was made possible by a grant from the Mesa Arts Center Foundation.
