Mark your calendars for the next Winter Concert Series, February 27-29, 2020, at the Argyros Performing Arts Center
In February 2019, the Sun Valley Music Festival transformed the Argyros into a nightclub for classical music for its inaugural Winter Concert Series. Relaxing in sofas, loveseats, lounge chairs, and at bar tables, audience members sat within feet of the musicians who performed on two stages and, for one piece, spread among the audience throughout the theater. Atmospheric lighting and video added surprise and mystery to the mood.
Music Director Alasdair Neale took the audience through 900 years of music, exploring vastly different acoustic environments.
One enthusiastic patron offered the following comment:
“I’m speechless. On the drive home, I was racking my brain for an adequate adjective for this evening’s performance and I’m at a total loss. Kudos to everyone for one of the most amazing nights of music in my life.”
