This special Art Salon is in the style of our Cafe Society series and will feature Jose Negroni, piano/composer 3 Time Grammy Nominee and his newest protégé Miss Elli Clarke, vocalist, as well as Nilda Comas, international artist, sculptor and VAS Curator Nilda Comas who most recently has been commissioned by the State of Florida to create a 9 foot tall marble sculpture of Mary Jane McLeod Bethune for the United States Capital in Washington, D.C.
Experience the mystery and magic of glass at this stunning installation of Dale Chihuly’s work at WMODA. Chihuly is the world’s foremost glass artist and his awesome Macchia series celebrates his remarkable powers of innovation and imagination. In Italian ‘macchia’ suggests the spontaneous outpouring of artistic sensibility and in choosing this title Chihuly pays tribute to the glass blowers of Venice.

Three-time “Grammy” nominee and Sony Music Latin pianist/composer/arranger, Jose Negroni, was born and raised on the southern coast of Puerto Rico. Mr. Negroni artfully combines his original classical style with a fusion of jazz and Latin rhythms and conveys his unique and masterful musical personality on the world’s great stages as a solo artist as well as with his internationally acclaimed Negroni’s Trio.
This evening Jose will introduce his newest protégé, Miss Elli Clarke as the featured vocalist, and will “collaborate” in total ensemble-style presentations of historical musical masterpieces!
“Blessed with a sultry and expressive voice and the perfect natural instinct for classic jazz and American standards…Miss Elli Clarke is the quintessential cabaret stylist.”
-Willie Riddle, Venetian Arts Society
