Garden Faves Exhibit at the Botanical Gardens

Carol Koziol believes that life is an ongoing, evolving puzzle and that we search for solutions. Her art parallels this life process as she sifts through colors, textures, images, and patterns. Capturing the essence of these “puzzle pieces” demands her focus, planning and simplification. Carol’s creativity comes into play as she composes a wonderfully, unexpected mingling of pure, vibrant color on paper compels her to paint.

Beethoven & Strauss with the BPO (7 pm Eastern)

Double-threat violin and piano phenom Ray Ushikubo returns to perform Beethoven’s youthful, imaginative, first full-length orchestral piece, contrasted by the subdued resignation of Richard Strauss’ sunset years and Metamorphosen, and the pulsating Spanish rhythms of Turina’s tone poem capturing the toreador’s prayers to succeed in the ring versus the audience’s blood-thirsty anticipation of the spectacle.
