Field Hall Presents: “Love & Water” Benefit Concert with Katya Grineva
July 16 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm| $75 – $100
Join acclaimed pianist Katya Grineva for Love & Water: a selection of romantic classics selected to celebrate our waterfront venue.
The program, titled “Love & Water,” will include a selection of romantic classics chosen by Ms. Grineva to celebrate Field Hall’s waterfront location and the beauty of the Olympic Peninsula. This unique program will be performed only once as a special gift from Ms. Grineva to honor the opening of the brand new Donna M. Morris Theater inside Field Hall and help us close our Capital Campaign.
The benefit concert will also recognize the extraordinary support from Founders Circle Patrons and Donors, including Dorothy Field, the donor and arts patron for whom the building has been named. The celebration will conclude with a champagne toast inside the new conference center overlooking the Strait of Juan de Fuca.
Tickets for this special event are available to Founders Circle donors who have contributed any amount in support of the Capital Campaign and their guests. We thank you for your support!

Known for her romantic and poetic style, Katya Grineva has engaged and entertained audiences throughout the United States, Europe, South America, Asia and Africa. She has performed more times than any other solo female pianist in the history of Carnegie Hall.
Born in Moscow, Ms. Grineva began studying piano at the age of five. She attended the Moscow Music School and studied with prominent Professor Pavel Messnar under the aegis of the prestigious Moscow Conservatory. It was during her tutelage by Messner that she began giving recitals and experiencing the “special and spontaneous” interaction between that artist and the audience that is the hallmark of her music. Ms. Grineva captures the heart of audiences with a rare combination of vulnerability, poignance and effortless virtuosity.
Through her music, Grineva says, “I want to be remembered for being able to touch people’s lives – with a full heart.”
