Our bi-monthly yoga class will have a special theme in honor of Asheville Amadeus. Yoga instructor Evan Hart Marsh will lead a relaxation class inspired by Mozart and the surrounding art-filled galleries. In 2008 Marsh began teaching in Berkeley, CA at Berkeley Yoga Center and in 2010 moved to New York City to complete his 200-hour certification. He continues to participate in additional teacher trainings and workshops that focus on spinal care, joint health, injury prevention and recovery.

Homages to Mozart

MARCH 19 — Thursday at 6:00 p.m.
This event is SOLD OUT.

Join us for a special evening Pianoforte concert “Homages to Mozart” as several young and esteemed pianists play works inspired by Mozart’s career, related to his study or composed by Mozart himself. Since 2006, the Asheville Art Museum has presented the Pianoforte series held in the Museum galleries. Typically there are 3 to 4 recitals a year and the musical artists are primarily drawn from the greater Asheville area — home to considerable talent. These artists have access to an exceptional instrument as well as the opportunity to perform within an acoustically fine and artistically stunning environment.

Art and Music by Design

MARCH 20 — Friday, 12:00 – 1:00 p.m.
Free with membership or Museum admission

Lunchtime Art Breaks are a series of gallery talks designed to inform and engage you in dialogue with members of staff. For Asheville Amadeus, Asheville Symphony Director David Whitehill will join with a member of the Museum’s curatorial staff to “dissect” works of art. Participants will learn how to analyze both a work of art and a musical work by Mozart.
