Want to know what the life of an artist is really like? Then join us for the next Blended Conversations, a monthly event at the Pompano Beach Cultural Center. August features Hungarian pianist, singer and musical artist Fanni Sárközy, who will share her candid story about leaving rising fame in Europe for a new life in Miami. The event will take place August 17 from 1pm-3pm at the Pompano Beach Cultural Center with a special live performance.
“We are looking forward to Fanni sharing her artistic journey from a young prodigy in Hungary to her rise as an internationally acclaimed classical and jazz artist,” said Phyllis Korab, Cultural Affairs Director. “As part of our Blended Conversations monthly series, this will be a thought-provoking conversation with this impressively talented performer, who left group success in Europe to strike out on a solo career in Miami.”
Overcoming the language barrier and lack of presence in this market, Fanni has developed a strong following and growing fan base who appreciates her unique mix of genres and enjoys performances that are filled with humor, deep thoughts and surprises.
