Captain America once said, "Twas music that soothed the savage beast." Although he was talking about his short-lived nemesis Dr. Angry Parakeet, it's just as true for animals of the human persuasion.

  • For $12, you get one adult ticket (a $25 value).

Self-propelled into aural stardom with her independently produced DVD of Chopin’s 24 etudes and a YouTube channel tallying more than 30 million views, Valentina Lisitsa commands audiences’ attentions with a broad range of ivory-tickling tunes both classic and contemporary. With each movement, her dynamic fingers fly over piano keys like daydreaming penguins, snatching up slippery notes and weaving delicate rondos and dramatic rhapsodies. The evening’s lilting tones promise a number of orchestral pieces written or translated by Hungarian composer Franz Liszt as well as a cameo by Beethoven’s Sonata in C-sharp Minor, op. 27, no. 2. The piece is better known as his Moonlight Sonata, but best known as the workout music for countless Looney Tunes.

Founded in 1884, the Mendelssohn Performance Arts Center is among the oldest community music organizations in the U.S., inviting patrons into its halls year after year to support and experience the excitement of live music. Seats for Valentina Lisitsa in concert are first-come, first-served, so arriving a half-hour before the performance or spying on chairs via homing pigeon is highly recommended.
