Sedona AZ (October 3, 2012) – The Sedona Heritage Museum presents the “Plein Air” string quartet in a special performance of “Music at the Museum” on Saturday, October 13 at 1:30 p.m. at the Museum.
Plein Aire will continue last season’s exploration of Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven’s quartets with Haydn’s quartet Op. 50 #6, also known as “The Frog.” This will be followed by Smetana’s autobiographical first quartet, “From My Life.”
The Plein Aire Quartet is a string quartet with a mission to perform for fun and fulfillment. Leader Melissa Collins Cripps says, “The group chooses to fully explore the connection between music and the appreciation of nature. All of our 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. 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 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. For more info about this special presentation or the Museum, 928-282-7038.
