This spring, the Parrish Art Museum popular Salon Series is back, featuring an exceptional lineup of award-winning musicians. The three-concert series promises uplifting Friday evening performances in the museum environment.

“We are thrilled to host this trio of concerts and all of these incredible musicians who offer our audiences meaningful and unforgettable musical experiences,” says Mónica Ramírez-Montagut, the museum’s executive director.

The Salon Series kicks off on Friday, May 3, with Pegasus: the Orchestra, led by artistic director and pianist Karén Hakobyan. Pegasus: the Orchestra presents a program focused on Rachmaninoff’s and Schubert’s vocal and chamber masterpieces. The full orchestra includes Sergey Antonov, cello/guest artist; Milad Daniari, contrabass/principal; Andrew Gonzalez, viola/principal; Karén Hakobyan, piano; Eiko Kano, violin/concertmaster; and Elisa Sunshine, soprano/guest artist.

Louis K. Meisel, who originated the Salon Series over 10 years ago and has presented over 50 concerts since, said he is thrilled to revive the series after a COVID-19 lull and a quiet October 2023.

“I have been part of approximately 40 concerts a year and presented in many event spaces for the pure joy of doing so,” Meisel said.

On Friday, May 17, the Borisevich Duo — pianist Margarita Loukachkina and violinist Nikita Borisevich — will bring their acclaimed performances from stages across the globe to the Parrish Art Museum. Borisevich and Loukachkina are winners of numerous international music competitions and have collectively performed on world renowned stages such as The Kennedy Center, Mozarteum University Salzburg, Grand Hall of Moscow Conservatory, Shriver Hall, California Institute of Technology, JCC Greater Washington and Manuel de Falla Auditorium, among others.

Concluding the spring season on Friday, May 31, the Sakura Duo, featuring pianists Jacopo and Maddalena Giacopuzzi, will mesmerize audiences with their dynamic four-hand piano arrangements, showcasing their international acclaim and virtuosity. Born in Verona, Italy to a family of pianists, the dynamic brother-and-sister duo have toured internationally and won a significant number of prestigious awards and competitions.

All concerts begin at 6 p.m. Tickets are available for $45 ($35 members), $40 seniors, $20 students and $10 for children at parrishart.org. The Parrish Art Museum is at 279 Montauk Highway in Water Mill.
