Immersive curator and classically trained violinist Adriana Molello knows how to throw an event like no other. She draws on a variety of musical styles and cultural influences to create electric, exciting parties across the U.S. The NYC-based musician has always been drawn to a variety of experiences.
From our friends at Atlas Obscura:
As a young violinist in Colorado, she played in her school’s jazz and mariachi bands in addition to contributing to the Denver Young Artists Orchestra and the Colorado Young Sinfonia. Since then, she’s filled her passport with stamps and played alongside major acts such as Pharrell, Jim James, and Beach Fossils. Her strong sense of wanderlust is a passion that she channels into her work today as a musician and event designer.
An avid traveler, Molello excels at bringing unique cultural experiences stateside with her.
Molello’s curiosity has both led her around the world (she once traveled to Romania in search of the elusive Stroh violin) and informed her work at home in New York City. As a field agent and event curator for Atlas Obscura, she’s helped design one-of-a-kind events, including Into the Veil at Brooklyn’s Green-Wood Cemetery, for which she arranged elements as varied as a French horn quartet, a butoh dancer, and fortune tellers. Last summer at the historic Untermyer Gardens in Yonkers, she devised a night of Grecian-inspired revelry on the banks of the Hudson River for The Great Forgotten Garden Party.
On a recent trip to Venice, during which Molello had a chance to visit the hidden islands and lesser-known locales of the city, she became inspired, in partnership with Atlas Obscura and Per La Mente, to create The Night Garden of Serenissima: A Venetian Fairy Tale at Albion Castle.
