Kathryn Mikesell and Park Avenue Pianos held an exclusive event for members and influencers of the art community. It was a magical night of fine art and culture, and an opportunity for like-minded art enthusiasts to meet and enjoy the stunning surroundings.Â Privileged Lifestyles, who co-hosted the event, auctioned off several pieces throughout the night.
Attendees gazed upon the priceless artwork as they enjoyed live performances by the Florida Grand Opera throughout the evening. Singers, Betsy Diaz, Kirsten Scott and Daniel Bates performed classic opera pieces. Pianist Maria Paulina Garcia played graceful melodies on a signature Steinway piano, provided by Park Avenue Pianos.
