Every year, music lovers living in Sedona look forward to the Red Rock Music Festival. In order to keep the music playing, the festival has made several changes. There are still opportunities to hear live music. On Sunday, November 15th, world-famous pianist Inna Faliks will give a concert entitled “Dialogues”. Social distancing guidelines will be observed, which means a limited number of tickets are available. Mask wearing is also encouraged.
Ms Faliks will play selections from Beethoven, Mozart, Liszt, Ravel, and Chopin. Interspersed will be modern compositions written specifically for her, from composers Maya Miro Johnson and Billy Childs. It’s sure to be a night to remember. The concert will be held at Sedona Creative Life Center, at 333 Schnebly Hill Road and will begin at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $36. The venue is wheelchair accessible. Kids are welcome, too. This is a great opportunity for them to learn to enjoy classical music in a live setting.
Take Lessons from Your Sedona Home at the Virtual Music Institute
Musicians living in Sedona have a very special opportunity to participate in the Red Rocks Virtual Music Institute. Those who play violin, viola, cello, and piano can take lessons with the faculty of the institute, including renowned violinist Shlomo Mintz. Other faculty members include professors at many excellent music departments around the country.
Because of the pandemic, there have been fewer live concerts than usual. This has a huge impact on the Red Rock Music Festival’s ability to continue operating and bringing world-class classical music to Sedona residents.
