The 2015 Hot Springs Music Festival begins tonight and runs through June 13. The festival will celebrate its 20th season with a commissioned work by Sterling Procter. The world premier of Festival Fanfare will be presented on the Arlington Hotel Terrace at 6:45 p.m. The opening fanfare performance will be followed by a concert by The Cavell Trio in the Arlington Hotel Ballroom at 7:30 p.m.
World-class mentor musicians will be paired with pre-professional apprentices to play side-by-side in orchestral, chamber, choral and solo performances. Over 200 international musicians will come together in Hot Springs to present over 20 concerts and 250 open rehearsals. Performance venues range from hotel ballrooms, to churches, to art galleries, and even the Arlington Lawn in Hot Springs National Park. Some orchestral highlights will be Stravinsky: Firebird Suite; Ravel: Daphnis and Chloe Suite No. 2; Debussy: Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun; and Chabrier: Espana.
