This summer, Pacific Art League opens our doors to the public for a Saturday evening of music from the Palo Alto based Corina Quartet.

Please join us at PAL on Saturday, July 14th at 7:30pm, for a special performance by the The Corina Quartet as they perform music by composer Be’eri Moalem in front of a backdrop of artwork inspired by the Great American West.

Be’eri Moalem’s composition “Multnomah", was written in 2015 and inspired by a rainy drive to Portland Oregon. Be’eri said “I tried to capture the rainfalls and somber mood of the drive.”

The Corina Quartet will also play Felix Mendelssohn's "Canzonetta," Ernst Bloch's "Meditation," Quartet #3 by Michael Nyman, George Gershwin's "Lullaby," selections from "West Side Story" by Leonard Bernstein, and songs by Percy Granger and Artie Shaw.

This is a free event and all are welcome!
