Thanks to everyone who joined us for an incredible night with Yanni!

    Yanni Is Still Chilling, 25 Years After the Acropolis
    PHILADELPHIA - The mustache is back. Yanni, the Greek-American god of sweeping, symphonic-ish musical light syrup, says he goes back and forth about keeping his signature facial flourish. He shaved it off a few years ago; it's disconcertingly absent from the cover of his 2016 album "Sensuous Chill."

"Jean certainly gleaned a love of the scenery and time period of his father’s paintings. He shot many of his films in the French locales where his father and other Impressionists preferred to paint en plein air—like Marlotte, Paris, and Cagnes-sur-Mer. And he chose narratives set in the 19th century, such as Nana (1926), based on an Émile Zola novel; and French Cancan (1955), inspired by Parisian dance halls, such as the Moulin Rouge. He also forged the practice of filming outdoors, following the suit of painters who took their easels to the countryside." via Artsy Book your tickets to explore Renoir: Father and Son/Painting and Cinema http://bit.ly/Renoir-Father-Son

    How Pierre-Auguste Renoir's Paintings Inspired His Son's Famous Films
    "If certain landscapes, certain costumes, bring to mind my father's paintings," Jean said about one of his films, Partie de campagne (1936), in an interview with Cahiers du Cinéma, "it's for two reasons: first, because it takes place during the period and in a place where my father worked a great deal in his youth.
