Luce Unplugged is an acoustic concert series that invites local musicians to perform after staff-led art talks on artworks chosen by the performing artists! Sit and enjoy the music, or tap your feet while wandering the Luce Center’s three interactive levels and more than 3,300 works of art.
This Sunday, local cellist Wytold experiments with finger-picking and percussive bowing. You'll likely get to see him perform on his electric, body-less cello (pictured to the right). Wytold was recently named as an 2013 Artist Fellow of the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities. He'll be joined by local hip-hop and Grammy-nominated artist Christylez Bacon at this performance, who you can see pictured in this post playing at a previous Luce Unplugged.
I highly recommend this one! I saw both of these local talents perform a week or so ago along with an amazing harp player and some other musicians at the Washington Sound Museum event Christylez organizes at BloomBars every month. On that note, be sure to save the date for the next one on Saturday, April 27th!
