Twenty-Year-Old Pianist Takes Audience on Journey Through Time

The Sanctuary Series will feature 20-year-old pianist Alice Burla, one of the youngest students ever accepted to The Juilliard School, in a special performance on February 19. The internationally recognized musician calls Westchester home after previously living in Toronto, Ukraine and Israel, and has performed at acclaimed venues like Carnegie Hall and Madrid’s Auditorio Nacional.  She has spent much of her time traveling around the world, but during this performance, her audiences will travel with her – through time.  The “Time Traveler” concert will present an array of music, from Baroque to Impressionism, and will include works from Bach and Mozart to Debussy and Chopin.  The performance will take place at the South Salem Presbyterian Church.
