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.
