To help children born with cleft lips and/or palates, concert pianist-composer Oksana Kolesnikova is scheduled to perform a special benefit concert at Paseo Club in Valencia on Saturday, Nov. 5.
Smile Train, an organization providing free cleft repair surgery and comprehensive cleft care for children will be the concert beneficiary. For each ticket sold, $50 will be donated to Smile Train to help provide new smiles and opportunities for children with clefts. This life-changing surgery and associated care will help change a child’s life by giving them the ability to eat, breathe, speak, and smile.
Oksana, a newly minted Valencia resident, has traveled the world, entertaining US troops and UN officials, and performed for Sir Elton John, Angelina Jolie, Oprah Winfrey and other A-list celebrities.
A master instructor for all ages, Oksana founded the Oksana School of Music & Art in 2006, serving Valencia, Beverly Hills, Rancho Palos Verdes and Los Angeles.
The concert will feature all-original music composed by Oksana, with a special guest performance by award-winning singer/songwriter Rob Murat, giving music lovers plenty of reasons to smile.
Cost: $100 pp and will include a three-course fine-dining meal.
The event will begin at 5:30 pm.
The event is sponsored by The Paseo Club and The Steinway Gallery of Beverly Hills. The concert is an outstanding opportunity to discover The Paseo Club, a landmark social club tucked into the heart of Valencia, offering modern amenities and facilities for the whole family.
