A graduate of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, pianist/composer Anne Sajdera received a B.Mu. in Composition. She will collaborate with Alexa Weber Morales for the Pop Up Dinner at Stella. With musical roots spanning the globe, she melds American and Brazilian jazz to her training in European classical music, creating an utterly personal sound that’s melodically verdant, harmonically sophisticated and rhythmically compelling.
Born in Europe, Susie Alexander is one of the most productive paint and mural artists living on the west coast of the US. See the painting transform before your eyes while listening to beautiful music at Stella.
Nancy Tieken Lopez, Artistic Director of Trails & Vistas, shares “In this delicious conceptual piece, the Stella Chef, Alex Downing and I invite the guests to interact with culinary arts in a more companionable way, which blurs the distance between artist, chef, and dinner guest. You aren’t just listening to the music as a backdrop, but you are actively listening--and are, in fact, building community as you eat. Blending music and a culinary experience while you enjoy an evening with friends and new acquaintances.”
