featured graphic for the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts after COVID-19

Cited by The Boston Globe as “an educator, motivational speaker, and game show host, all rolled up in one,” ROB KAPILOW explores Frédéric Chopin’s haunting PIANO SONATA IN B-FLAT MINOR, featuring the famous FUNERAL MARCH, at the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts (CCPA) on Wednesday, March 16 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $55 and are available at the CCPA Ticket Office and or by calling (562) 916-8500. The show is sponsored by George and Bev Ray.

Indian-American pianist VIJAY VENKATESH and the COLBURN SCHOOL OF MUSIC help Kapilow explore the iconic Chopin piece, which was played at the Polish composer’s funeral. The Washington Post raved: “Vijay Venkatesh is blessed with it all: transcendent technique, unbridled passion, and irresistible charisma. He breathes with an oxygen of imagination.” Recognized on three continents for his moving pianism, Venkatesh is a Davidson Fellow Laureate at the Library of Congress, USC Thornton’s Discovery Scholar, and the grand prize winner of the Los Angeles Music Center’s Spotlight Awards. He was featured on NPR’s From the Top.
