Lipinsky San Diego Jewish Arts Festival: The Pianist of Willesden Lane
She's back! As part of the 2015 Lipinsky Family San Diego Jewish Arts Festival, Mona Golabeck performs her virtuoso, Craig Noel Award-winning "concert drama" (with brilliant piano music) of Lisa Jura, a young Jewish musician whose dreams are interrupted by the Nazi regime. She goes to England and, with an indomitable spirit, she follows her dream and finds her way. Golabeck doesn't "act." Instead you'd swear she's actually channeling her mother and grandmother and even those horrific times. An amazing story told, and performed on a black Steinway, by an amazing person. Critic's Pick.
