Parent's Night Out at the Jax!
Baroque, Bluegrass and Blue Jeans. This is the title of the up-coming event on Friday, September 7, 2012 at 7:30 pm at The Jacksonville Center for the Arts (the Jax) in Floyd, VA. This concert will explore the deep connection between Baroque, Classical and Bluegrass styles. From the classic mandolin concerto by Antonio Vivaldi to modern Bluegrass masterpieces, the music will bridge the gap between traditional and original compositions with innovative and fun combinations.
Selections include Ms. Trombetta singing Samuel Barber’s “Knoxville, Summer of 1915” and Schubert’s “The Shepherd on the Rock” accompanied by Maestro David Stewart Wiley at the piano and Jeff Midkiff on the mandolin and clarinet. “This crossover musical event is the perfect combination for Floyd, as we celebrate the music of Virginia’s Blue Ridge,” said Maestro David Wiley. “There is also a contest for the coolest jeans, so get creative and join us for an inspiring evening of great music.” A Meet the Artist Champagne Reception will follow the event.
Tickets are available for the event for $25 in advance by calling (540) 745-2784, or on line at jacksonvillecenter.org. You can also purchase them at the door pending availability for $30. I'd suggest you enjoy a great dinner at wonderful Mickey G's in Floyd first. Way yum!
The Jax is also hosting the Kandinsky Trio in concert on Saturday, October 6, 2012 at 7:30 pm. If you'd like to attend both events, tickets are $45.00 per person for the series.
