Wednesday Evenings with Max Levinson – Summer 2020
San Juan Chamber MusicFest Artistic Director Max Levinson is offering a series of eight live, virtual, hour-long historical presentations on piano music throughout the ages. Max will give a talk, play a short piano piece and then take questions from the Zoom audience. Max is presenting these virtual talks because the 2020 SJCMF has been cancelled due to COVID-19.
The talks will begin at 7:00 p.m. and presented using Zoom Video Conferencing. You will need a computer, iPad or other device capable of accessing the Zoom program for this virtual presentation.
