Illuminations: Chelsea Randall + Francesca Khalifa, pianists
Acclaimed pianists and New York’s EXTENSITY Concert Series co-founders Chelsea Randall and Francesca Khalifa will perform a stimulating duo-recital of contemporary and overlooked solo piano works by Black and Latin composers including Regina Harris Baiocchi, George Walker, Alfredo Diez Nieto and Miguel del Aguila. The program will also highlight West Coast Premieres of pieces by talented young composers Grace Coberly and Hannah Sobel, in partnership with Wildflower Composers. A festive reception and artist meet and greet will follow.
Illuminations will launch EXTENSITY’s new EXT Pop-Ups series–short-form concerts spotlighting emerging composers.
