June 7 Concert Dedicated to Cesar Vuksic

Thursday, June 5, 2014 10:43 AM

Here is a timely reminder that our final concert of the 2013-2014 season is this Saturday, June 7 at 8pm. The venue is Symphony Space's Thalia; see the flier for all the details.

As always, this concert spotlights several NYCC composer and performer members; in addition, this concert celebrates our NYCC Composition Competition winner with a premiere performance. Sadly, however, we dedicate this concert to Cesar Vuksic, who passed away too soon, only a week ago. Cesar was a long-time member of the NYCC and a brilliant pianist.

In tribute, Gene McBride writes:

This concert is dedicated to our dear friend and NYCC member Cesar Vuksic. Cesar... composer, pianist, painter will be missed by all those who knew him. Cesar's artistry, his commitment to new music was boundless. The concert will include a new work of Cesar's for 4-hand piano. The work, Tango Moods, was written for Marcia Eckert who will be joined by Debra Kaye in this premiere.
