Rocking Classic
Conjunction of world classical music masterpieces and time-proven rock piano covers by Cody Gill, California
Let's rock!
July 30th, 7 PM, FORUM Factory, Berlin
The “Rocking Classic” chamber concert contains two sections: first with classical pieces by Beethoven, Chopin, Rachmaninov, Tchaikovsky and second with classic rock ballads by Muse, Radiohead, Pink Floyd, Doors, Beatles, Johnny Cash
In 2010-s I was composing for a rock/classical project VEIL in California, running tours and recording on the US west coast. In the 2020s I started experimenting with instrumental rock covers and classical works, switching focus to classical music, composing and performing. In 2021 I moved to Berlin to develop a career in classical music.

I'm happy to invite all the classical piano music lovers to my debut concert in Berlin!

On Art Workshop for Ukrainian Refugee

We believe in the power of art in connecting people, bridging the misunderstandings, and healing the wound. The organizing team of the concert has decided to donate all profit from the concert to hosting art therapy workshops for the Ukrainian refugees.

The workshop
One main organizer of the concert - nonprofit organization Viva la Vida, has been developing and conducting art therapy workshops for years with different social groups, including autistic children, underprivileged teenagers, etc. This time we will conduct the art therapy workshop designed specifically for refugees on trauma relief. The session will be about 1.5-2hr with various artistic activities involved. A professional artist, Sofie Roehrig, will be there to facilitate the activities.

How to participate
This workshop is free for anyone who recently came to Germany from Ukraine because of the war. Refugees from other countries are also welcomed. If you are not a refugee yourself but always care about the issue of migration and refugee, you are welcomed to be present as a volunteer to help
