Violinist Elmira Darvarova, after 24 years with the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, as former concertmaster and the first female concertmaster in the MET’s history, is once again gracing concert halls as a soloist. She’ll be making two Arizona appearances this month as she returns August 23 & 24th to perform with the Red Rocks Music Festival, in “FROM BACH TO BLUES”, an eclectic recital program that includes several world premieres-all for unaccompanied violin.
"The Sound Book-- The Science of the Sonic Wonders of the World" by Trevor Cox; "Cox is fascinated by room acoustics, and how places can be designed for speech, like classrooms, and beautiful music, like auditoriums and concert halls. you can’t help but get caught up in his enthusiasm-- He's Kind of like the Indiana Jones of Acoustic research and exploration." -Randy Kinkel
