Sedona AZ (April 11, 2012) – The Sedona Heritage Museum presents the Plein Aire String Quartet in a special performance of “Music at the Museum” at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 21 at the Museum.
Plein Aire finishes out their Museum season with the Dissonant quartet of Mozart (K. 465) and the La Melanconia quartet of Beethoven (Op. 18 #6). These harmonically advanced compositions illustrate how far the string quartet had developed by the end of the 18th century. That of Beethoven hints of things to come in the music of the 19th century.
The Plein Aire Quartet is a string quartet with a mission to perform for fun and fulfillment. The members are professional musicians performing with Verde Valley Sinfonietta and the Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra as well as others.
The concert is about an hour long. Refreshments will be served. Tickets are $5 in advance or at the door, with children under 12 free. Museum admission is separate.
The Sedona Heritage Museum is located at 735 Jordan Rd in Jordan Historical Park. The Museum is open daily at 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. For more info about this special presentation or the Museum, 928-282-7038.
