On Tuesday and Thursday of Employee Appreciation Week, Gifts of Art will present free 30-minute Zoom concerts.

From Chopin to Today by pianist Lucy Yao

When: 11 a.m. – 11:30 a.m., Tuesday, Sept. 22 

A pianist, teacher, composer and interdisciplinary artist, Lucy Yao allows music to go anywhere possible that is unexplored. She draws from a rich repertoire ranging from 17th century solo piano works to interdisciplinary projects and music with electronics.

Beginning her music studies at the age of 4, and with degrees from Manhattan School of Music and Western Michigan University, Yao is based in New York City and now performs as a solo pianist, chamber musician, orchestral musician and collaborative pianist throughout the world.

Folk Music & More by Gemily

When: 11 a.m. – 11:30 a.m., Thursday, Sept. 24 

Sandor and Laszlo Slomovits are Ann Arbor’s nationally-known folk music duo, Gemini. However, when they are joined by San’s daughter Emily, they are called Gemily!

The trio has a wide-ranging repertoire, from classic songs of the 1960s, to traditional folk songs and dance tunes, as well as their own sparkling originals. San and Emily will be together in one screen with Laz in another.  They will take turns singing and playing favorite songs on a variety of instruments.
