The Tallman Hotel will present its second season of “Concerts with Conversation” extending through May 15 with a concert each month.
Ten percent of all proceeds from the concerts will benefit the Soper-Reese Community Theater Fund which is in the process of converting the old single-screen movie theater in Lakeport into a state-of-the-art performing arts center.
As with the first, highly successful Tallman concert season in 2007, the series will bring some of Northern California’s finest musical talent to this delightful and intimate Lake County venue.
Guests will enjoy a champagne reception with the musicians in the parlor of the hotel beginning at 5:30 p.m. followed by a three course dinner featuring Lake County wines.
This will be followed by an informal concert and dialogue with the musicians beginning at 7:30 p.m. in the charming Riffe’s Meeting House next door to the Hotel.
On April 17 pianist Elena Casanova will perform. Casanova has been a featured soloist with the Ukiah Symphony Orchestra and has performed widely throughout Northern California.
An exciting and expressive performer, Elena will present a variety of classical and contemporary pieces plus some of the passionate music from her native Cuba. She has recently released a haunting CD of classical and modern Cuban music called Recordando.
The cost for individual concerts with dinner is $80, or $350 for the entire series. Tickets for the concerts only can be obtained for $35. The Hotel also has a special package of hotel room plus two concert and dinner tickets for $275.
