ON Stage

Listen, Look, Engage! CAFE Flutes and MCA Artists in Concert

May 7, 2023


Join us for an exciting afternoon of visual and musical arts. This event invites participants to interact with the artists and musicians to get a close-up look at the creative process.

Central Arizona Flute Ensemble (CAFE Flutes) will perform a variety of musical styles during the first half of this concert in the Piper Repertory Theater.  After intermission, they will perform four pieces of music that connect with a projected image of four artworks currently on display in the Mesa Contemporary Art (MCA) Museum. Experience the juxtaposition of art with live music.

After each piece, Arts Advocate JILL BERNSTEIN will lead the audience in a discussion to build meaning, create dialogue, and offer commentary about how artists and composers express their ideas, and how audiences process them. MCA artists BILL DAMBROVA, ABBEY MESSMER, BOBBY ZOKAITES, and COLLEEN QUIGLEY will be on hand to provide insights about their creative process.  Following the concert, participants are invited to tour the MCA Museum to see the artwork in person and talk with the artists.

This event is made possible by a grant from the Mesa Arts Center Foundation.
