Piano concert to feature work based on scientific matters

HIGHWOOD – Join Brushwood Center at the Midwest Young Artists Conservatory for a special performance of “Suite de los Elementos” featuring Dr. Héctor Rasgado-Flores and chamber musicians from Midwest Young Artists Conservatory.

He was invited to write a musical suite about the chemical elements in hopes of attracting more students to study chemistry. The result is a suite for piano with 14 short pieces, each dedicated to a chemical element.
