Arts Partnership Success Story

Cellist Sera Smolen; soloist, collaborator, chamber musician, improviser, orchestral musician, recording artist AND recipient of a 2017 SOS grant for "Off the Page.""Off the Page" is a collection of 10 compositions that teach young musicians how to improvise over a musical structure. Sera will use the money from the SOS grant to complete recordings of the collection in order to help students improve their technique, improvisation and play "in the groove" stylistically. As a committed improviser, she  has collaborated with dancers, sculptors, painters and poets.  Sera composes and records original music with her husband, Tom Mank with whom she will tour the Netherlands and Belgium for the ninth time in April 2017. CAP is happy to support Sera as she brings music "Off the Page" and shares her work with students and teachers .
