- PSO Livestream March 20: “Mozart and KV265”
8 p.m. via livestream. Tickets are $25 and may be purchased here. The Plano Symphony Orchestra performs Mussorgsky’s “Pictures at an Exhibition” as arranged by Ravel, accompanied by KV265’s film, “Science Through Art” that features images from the Hubble Telescope. Famed Russian pianist Mikhail Berestnev opens the concert with “Piano Concerto No. 21 in C Major K.467,” one of Mozart’s most spirited piano concertos.
- “An Evening with C.S. Lewis” March 27-28
3 p.m. and 8 p.m. March 27 and 3 p.m. March 28 in the Hill Performance Hall. Tickets are $49.50-$59.50 (receive a 50 percent discount with the promo code LION).
The show gives the audience a “you are there” feel, as if they are being hosted at the home of the late British author C.S. Lewis (played by David Payne), listening to him talk as he sits by the fire. Lewis recalls the people and events that inspired his thought and shaped his life; his friendship with J.R.R. Tolkien; why he nearly abandoned the Narnia Chronicles; how he came to embrace Christianity and of the American woman who turned his life upside down.
- “A Celebration of Friendship” Art Exhibit Continues
Noon-5 p.m. weekdays and during all public events, through May 31 in the Green Mezzanine Gallery. Admission is free.
Dallas artist Melanie M. Brannan presents a series of more than 20 paintings that chronicle a deep friendship (with the late Maryann Wegloski, former Eisemann Center House Manager) and explore her emotions as her friend struggled with a diagnosis of nodular melanoma. Brannan is donating 100 percent of the net proceeds from the show to the AIM at Melanoma Foundation, and the Eisemann Center is donating back its usual commission on works sold to maximize the donation.
Unless otherwise noted, tickets to Eisemann Center events are available at the Eisemann Center Ticket Office (credit card only), 972-744-4650 and at www.eisemanncenter.com. Click here for more information about the Eisemann Center’s COVID-19 safety procedures.
