Join us every Tuesday for Salastina’s Happy Hour: bringing you free, live musical performance, spirited conversation, and interaction with musicians and fellow music lovers.
At the end of last month, Venetian artist Livio de Marchi's latest work -- an enormous, sea-worthy violin -- set sail down the canals of Venice. De Marchi named it "Noah's Violin" after the biblical Arc; he sees it as delivering a message of artistic and cultural hope after a storm. The whimsy of it all certainly captured the world's imagination. We're delighted to interview Livio briefly via a special translator for this Happy Hour: Roberto Cani. Roberto is the Concertmaster of the LA Opera Orchestra and is a talented violin- and bow-maker in his own right.
