Herriott, known for his virtuosity, passion and powerful command of the piano takes the stage at The LOFT Cinema. Adding a fascinating aspect to the performance, Art Specialist Evan McMurtry will guide the audience on a tour of one of the world's most impressive collections of Old Masters from the Hermitage Museum, including works by da Vinci, Monet, and Picasso. Over two-hundred-and-fifty years, the State Hermitage Museum has grown from a private gallery into a sprawling complex in the heart of Saint Petersburg, Russia, all thanks to the efforts ambitious Emperors and one powerful Empress, Catherine the Great. As Herriott plays, the audience will be treated to a selection of images on the big screen as they view the highlights from this magnificent collection.
