Special Guest Performance by CHRISTIAN DALLAS BLAKELY
(Piano concert – 3PM)
To accompany this Art Soiree event, Christian Dallas Blakely will be performing a variety French and Italian pieces, notably by Frederic Chopin, Franz Liszt, Yann Tiersen, and others, along with his own set of compositions, variations, and mixes, all in A-major, D-minor, F-minor and B-flat minor.
Christian Dallas Blakely, a Sonoma County California native, developed a deep passion for piano at the age of 6 and began composing for the piano at 22 while a graduate student in Grenoble, France. As a frequent performer at embassies, clubs, cafes, and music festivals over the past 7 years in DC, Paris, London, Lisboa, Stuttgart, and Los Angeles, he strives to develop and perform a wide repertoire of piano music genres varying in different musical structure that attempt to provoke daydreaming and reflection. www.cd-blakely.com
