Some of the most talented musicians in the world will perform together in Fayetteville this weekend.
The Artosphere Festival Orchestra, made up of a collection of 80 premier musicians from major symphonies, ensembles, and distinguished music programs from all over the globe, will perform a festival finale concert at 8 p.m. Friday, June 6 at Walton Arts Center’s Baum Walker Hall.
The festival finale show is titled Scandinavian Masterworks, and focuses on the work of Edvard Grieg and Jean Sibelius. Maestro Corrado Rovaris will conduct the players for a performance of Greig’s Piano Concerto in A minor, Op. 16, (featuring internationally renowned pianist Emanuele Arciuli of Italy) and Sibelius’s Symphony No. 2 in D major, Op. 43.
Several Artosphere Festival Orchestra musicians will also perform a series of “tiny concerts” in unexpected locations such as restaurants, coffee shops and other gathering places around Fayetteville this week. Look for those on Thursday night from about 6-10 p.m. at various places on Dickson Street.
Tickets for the Artosphere Festival Finale show on Friday night range from $10-25, and are on sale now at waltonartscenter.org.
