Description

In celebration of Juneteenth and George Walker’s birth month, EXTENSITY co-founders Francesca Khalifa and Chelsea Randall perform an exciting duo recital pairing the monumental, late piano sonatas No. 30 Op. 109 and No. 31 Op. 110 by L. van Beethoven with the masterful, yet rarely heard piano sonatas No. 2 and No. 4 by pioneering 20th century Black American composer George Walker.

Proceeds from this benefit concert will raise funds for EXTENSITY’s inaugural season, Analogs, taking place June 12 - July 31, 2021, at Uncommonly Studio. Analogs will bring together some of the most innovative artists working today to explore unexpected intersections between Western Classical music and underrepresented, overlooked and new voices. 

EXTENSITY, founded by pianists Francesca Khalifa and Chelsea Randall, presents innovative programming by emerging and established artists working across a range of disciplines including music, fine art and multimedia. EXTENSITY also aims to create frameworks for artists and audiences to interact, share ideas, and make new discoveries.
