A Masterclass with Seymour Bernstein

On Sunday October 28, 2pm - 6pm

Meet Seymour Bernstein: From his humble beginnings of growing up in the Weequahic section of Newark, NJ, this 91 year old virtuoso pianist is a true original who gave up a successful concert career to teach music. We're fortunate enough to have him here with us this month as he will be teaching a piano masterclass, and then will present 

Seymour: An Introduction. A wonderfully warm, witty, and intimate tribute from his friend and famous actor, Ethan Hawke, Seymour shares unforgettable stories from his remarkable life and eye-opening words of wisdom, as well as insightful reflections on art, creativity, and the search for fulfillment. A "poignant guide to life" (Indiewire) and an engaging exploration on the dedication, perseverance, and fortitude essential to creating both art and a rewarding life, that will leave audiences uplifted and inspired.

This is all followed by a Q&A session with the legend himself.

Tickets are available at our office or online at our online store.
