About Art of Élan
Demarre McGill and Kate Hatmaker
For the past 7 years, Art of Élan has been pioneering unique events and bringing the excitement of classical music to diverse audiences. Created by violinist Kate Hatmaker and flutist Demarre McGill, Art of Élan is continually expanding the scope of classical music in San Diego through its innovative, one-hour programming in unique performance venues. By drawing inspiration from the word élan, which represents momentum, vigor and spirit, and providing an opportunity to connect directly with concertgoers, Art of Élan continues to engage and energize audiences in new ways.
We invite you to join us on Thursday, June 4th when Art of Élan's popular downtown series returns with a special show that fuses bluegrass and classical music elements and features works by Mark O'Connor, Kip Jones and Karl Doty, Aaron Jay Kernis, David Bruce and San Diego native John Mailander.
Come experience a "crossfire" of musical ideas in the urban ambiance of The Glashaus, an artist collective studio and gallery housing works by painters, photographers, sculptors, engineers, ceramic artists, mixed media artists and more.
