Lively Arts Informances bring performers, public together

The public is invited to sit down with some of the world's top musicians during the Lively Arts 2002-03 season to hear them talk about their careers, perform musical excerpts and answer questions from the audience.

The free Lively Arts Informances, designed with families in mind, will be held Mondays from 6 to 7 p.m. at the Community School of Music and Arts, 220 View St., Mountain View. Seating is first come, first served. Following is a schedule for the season:

  • Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio (Oct. 28), now celebrating its 25th season, was named 2001 Ensemble of the Year by Musical America International Directory of the Performing Arts
  • Kit Armstrong (Nov. 11), a 10-year-old piano prodigy
  • Barbara Nissman (Jan. 13), the first pianist to play and record Prokofiev's complete sonatas
  • Cypress String Quartet (Feb. 10), the youthful foursome that Chamber Music Magazine has called an "ensemble to watch"
  • Paul Galbraith (March 3), an internationally acclaimed guitarist whose instrument has eight strings (as opposed to the traditional six)
  • Trio Voronezh (April 14), three young conservatory graduates whose from-memory performances of classical music, Russian folk melodies, Gypsy airs, tangos -- even ragtime and Gershwin tunes -- regularly bring audiences to their feet
