Mosaïque – concerts with a twist

2013-theme-background

Mosaïque is an innovative concert series created by pianists Deirdre Brenner and Chanda VanderHart in 2013. Concerts take place at BRICK-5, a beautiful, lofted space that was originally a pea-shucking factory in Vienna’s 15th district.

Each Mosaïque concert combines classical art song with at least one additional artistic element such as dance, chamber music, folk music, jazz, declamation, visual art, or fashion. This cross-pollination of artistic forms and genres allows international performers to explore new ideas, repertoire and relationships while bridging stylistic divides.

The fusion of song with other art forms in an alternative setting appeals to an exceptionally broad audience. The relaxed atmosphere of the venue lends itself to a certain intimacy between artist and audience, where performers often share personal insights about their music and art. To further heighten their allure, each concert revolves around a unique theme, and many contain elements of surprise and humor.
