Mother's Day at CSMA

Local community art school hosting music-writing workshop, Mother's Day concert

CSMA workshop

Comedic musicians Aleksey Igudesman, a violinist, and Hyung-ki Joo, a pianist, will be giving a workshop called "8 to 88" at the Community School of Music and Arts in Mountain View on Sunday, May 4, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Musicians are welcome to bring their own instruments, along with original compositions and sketches and are encouraged to share any "hidden talents." The workshop encourages musicians to be more open to ideas that are often ignored in the music-making process, like improvisation, choreography, dramaturgy and humor.

All types of musicians are welcome. More information is at captivateartists.com

Joo and Igudesman will also be performing the West Coast premiere of their new show, "And Now Mozart" at the Flint Center in Cupertino, on May 3 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $35-$75 at the Flint Center box office, through Ticketmaster or by calling 800-745-3000.

Mother's Day concert

The CSMA will be hosting its annual Merit Scholarship Students Mother's Day Concert on Saturday, May 10 at 7 p.m.

Merit Scholarship students from the CSMA will showcase many instruments at the event, including piano, violin, flute, trumpet, percussion and voice, in small ensembles.

These students are awarded scholarships based on commitment levels, talent and achievement in musical studies.

"We are so proud to give our excellent Merit Scholars the opportunity to perform for the community. It is always a thrill to show off the talents of these outstanding artists," said Vickie Scott Grove, executive director of CSMA.

The free concert is scheduled to be held at Tateuchi Hall, 230 San Antonio Circle in Mountain View.

The concert is part of CSMA's 2013-14 Community Concert Series. For the full schedule or more information, go to arts4all.org.
