The City of Laguna Beach Arts Commission Sunset Serenades series has been postponed due to COVID-19. Scheduled to perform today, Friday, May 22, was classical pianist Chiacheng Sen, who has filmed a special performance and message to the Laguna Beach community from her home.

She also holds her master’s degree from the New England Conservatory of Music and won the American Protégé International Piano and String competition, which led to her Carnegie Hall debut.

“Sunset Serenades hosts the performances of talented artists in a spectacular location,” said Arts Commissioner Suzi Chauvel. “Although we may not be at the concert physically together, the music brings our souls together to enjoy the talents of this astounding pianist. 

“These concerts are curated and are funded by the lodging establishments and City of Laguna Beach. They are a real treasure.”

“This is the twelfth season of Sunset Serenades,” said Siân Poeschl, Cultural Arts Manager, adding, “The season is not over yet. We hope to present some concerts in the fall, some virtually, and some in alternative and new locations. Sign up for our newsletter to be the first to know”
