The St. John School of the Arts is preparing to kick off its first Sis Frank Concert Series to honor and remember the co-founder of the school. In past years, Ms. Frank would invite musicians to perform in concert. The school, and its director, Kim Wild, have committed to continue the tradition.
The first concert will be January 4, featuring Garry Dial, a jazz pianist from New York City, performing with Luba Dolgopolsky, a School of the Arts voice instructor. Later in the month, the Ahn Trio will be featured. The sisters are well known for their classical and chamber music concerts. The Ahns were a favorite of Sis Frank.
A concert in late March will feature faculty members of the School of the Arts in concert, and in April the New York Empire Trio will offer a program of classical and contemporary music.
Tickets to each concert cost $30. The entire series is $100.
