Art Of Elan: Demarre Mcgill
A series of short online experiences pairing The San Diego Museum of Art permanent collection with the thoughtfully curated music of Art of Elan.
Created by Demarre McGill (principal flutist for the Seattle Symphony Orchestra) and Kate Hatmaker (violinist for San Diego Symphony), Art of Élan says it “aims to expose new audiences to classical music, explore (and expand) the horizons of the classical music scene, energize audiences and musicians alike, and ultimately educate and cultivate a future generation of classical music lovers.” The San Diego Museum of Art is partnering with Art of Elan to host an online series of musical performances inspired by works of art from the museum’s permanent collection. This edition features Demarre McGill and the painting “Notre Dame” by Maximilien Luce. (McGill has appeared as soloist with the Philadelphia Orchestra and the Dallas Symphony Orchestra.)
