Sunday To-Do: 'Hot Springs Music Festival'

Posted By on Fri, May 29, 2009 at 2:18 PM


6:45 p.m., Arlington Hotel. $5-$125.

Now in its 14th season, the Hot Springs Music Festival continues to pair musician mentors from respected orchestras, conservatory faculties and the like with promising pre-professional musicians, all of whom receive full scholarships and housing for the two-week festival. The two groups, playing side-by-side, offer 20 concerts and more than 250 rehearsals open to the public. This year the theme is “Sound and Fury.” The highlights include an English-language production of Peter Brook's re-staging of Bizet's “The Tragedy of Carmen,” an orchestral performance of Ravel's “Daphnis and Chloe Suite No. 2” and a joint performance, by the orchestra and festival chorus, of Mendelssohn's “The First Walpurgis Night.” The festival runs through June 13 in downtown Hot Springs. A limited number of season passes are available for $125. Otherwise, single concert tickets range from $5-$25. The complete schedule is available at
