April 4th, Classical Underground.
About every two months, we drive to an industrial desert in Torrance and, with salad and wine, enter one of the nondescript halls. There we join Alexis Steel in his art studio, packed with his large symbolist paintings. The Ukrainian painter organizes a music program for an audience of more than 100 people. Last monday we tremendously enjoyed listening to the singer Delaram Kamareh and the violinist Asya Sorshneva and many more. He says “Art is Great,” we say “Alexis the Great.”
