On the actual 85th anniversary of Scarsdale Adult School's first class, which was attended by 263 men and women, celebrate this momentous occasion at Cristiana Pegoraro's special concert -- an evening with beautiful music and delicious cake!

Celebrated Italian pianist and composer Cristiana Pegoraro demonstrates her deep passion and enthusiasm for classical music in a format that combines live piano performances with stimulating conversation about the composers' lives, impact, and artistry. In this concert, she brings to Scarsdale a preview of the annotated recital entitled "Colors of Love -- the Great Love Stories" to be performed at Carnegie Hall the following week. Performance may include selections from Beethoven, Chopin, Schumann, Brahms, and Pegoraro herself.

CRISTIANA PEGORARO is an Italian pianist and composer. Called “an artist of the highest caliber” by the New York Times, she has performed at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, the Sydney Opera House and other international venues and has recorded many CDs. She regularly conducts master classes across the United States (including at the Juilliard School), and in Italy, Portugal and the Middle East. She is the author of a series of children’s books based on Italian operas.
