In a special Thursday evening performance, the At the Parish House performance series of Middleburg’s Emmanuel Church is pleased to welcome pianist Sophia Subbayya Vastek in a return engagement on December 12.

She will perform music from the early 20th Century by French composer Lili Boulanger and Polish composer Karol Szymanowski. Described as playing with “passion and profound tenderness,” Vastek has performed in France, South Africa, Mexico and around the United States, including at the Kennedy Center, the State Department, the Canadian Embassy, the Polish Cultural Institute and The Apollo Theatre. 

Regarding the works of the composers she will be playing, Vastek says this is “music that is unexpected, music that speaks, music that astonishes and confounds, music that binds, music that heals.” 

Reservations are recommended but not required (540-687-6297).  A donation of $10 is suggested but not required.  All are welcome.
