CNS Local Life(CNS Local Life): Renowned soloist Elizabeth Pitcairn, who is known as the ‘Red Violinist’, will be joining musicians from New York City and Cayman-based pianist Glen Inanga to perform this weekend as part of Cayman Arts Festival (CAF) events. The New York Quintet, also featuring Arturo Delmoni (violin) and Michael Roth (viola), from the New York City Ballet Orchestra, and Sarah Hewitt Roth (cello), will perform works by Antonin Dvorak, Moritz Moszkowksi and Dmitri Shostakovich.

The concert is taking place Saturday, 3 November at 5pm at Agape Family Worship Centre.

Marius Gaina, CAF executive director, said in a press release, “All performers want to tell a story through their music, through their instruments. Elizabeth has the enviable ability to wow us with both her amazing talent and her world-famous instrument and will present us with a truly mesmerising concert.

“This time her story will be even more compelling with the artistry that Arturo will bring given his extensive musical experience, and the undoubted great symbiosis that will be achieved with Michael, Sarah and Glen’s contribution.”

Gaina also thanked concert sponsors ICG Management Limited and Ogier.

Originally formed as a three-day festival, the CAF has evolved into an organisation that produces monthly events that bring cultural experiences to the Cayman Islands and supports their educational programme for young people, which provides musical instruments to children, organises workshops with visiting artists and coordinates musical lessons at local schools, the press release said.
