New Music Festival Premieres Tonight in Anchorage

A new, Anchorage-based music festival, will have its inaugural concert this evening at the Fine Arts Building Recital Hall at the University of Alaska Anchorage. Parking is free, and the concert is a bargain.

The orchestra has been holding youth and children workshops this week, as players have gathered from around America, Canada and the world to teach and perform.

There will be concerts Thursday through Sunday, at four locations:

August 26th
7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
UAA Fine Arts Recital Hall

August 27th
7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Discovery Theater

August 28th
8:00 pm - 10:30 pm
St. Andrew's Catholic Church

August 29th
7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Discovery Theater

There are detailed descriptions of the concerts and their programs at this page.

Here are some of the musicians, rehearsing this afternoon in my classroom at UAA:
