Red Curtain Addict will be having their $10M Stradivari Launch Party at The Battery’s Penthouse in San Francisco on March 2, 2018. Red Curtain Addict is a performing arts platform for audiences of all levels to discover, learn and interact with local theaters, performance artists and more.

“We’re fortunate to live in a community that is enriched with so many arts and cultural organizations and experiences,” says Co-Founder Kari Lincks Coomans. “Our goal is to amplify what is happening in the arts scene and help audiences connect and learn more about them in a fun and easy way.”  

The sold-out launch party will include a performance and presentation with the SF Ballet’s concertmaster, Cordula Merks, on one of the finest Golden Period instruments, Stradivari’s ‘Circle’ violin which was created in 1701. The evening will include a presentation with co-founder and host Kari Lincks Coomans and a J & A Beare representative, Maja Wegrzynowska to discuss the rich history of this violin and why it’s worth millions.

“At this event, our hope is to raise awareness about the investment opportunity for Stradivari’s ‘Circle’ violin so that Cordula can retain possession of this special instrument and continue playing it in the San Francisco Ballet’s orchestra,” says Parker Coomans, co-founder of Red Curtain Addict.  

“A piece of art like this isn’t something that should be locked away, it should be played and heard by as many people as possible” added Cordula.  This Violin is older than Mozart, and played during the time of Bach. “There is truly no way to describe the significance of this violin you are just going to have to hear it to believe it,” said Parker Coomans.

To get a sneak peek of the already sold-out event, Red Curtain Addict just released a new episode featuring an interview with Merks and Coomans about this special Violin. You can watch it on Youtube.
