The AETN Foundation and Celebrity Attractions will present internationally renowned violinist David Garrett live in concert at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 7 at Robinson Center Music Hall in Little Rock.
Garrett, a German violinist who plays everything from Vivaldi to Queen to Michael Jackson, weaves classical standards with rock and pop favorites for a performance reminiscent of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. He has gained fans once again with his edgy blend of classical and rock music on his sophomore effort "Rock Symphonies" and smash public television special of the same name. "Rock Symphonies" debuted at No. 2 behind Sting and remained in the top 5 of Billboard’s Classical Crossover chart, peaking at No. 1, for 13 weeks.
"Rock Symphonies" features new interpretations of Garrett’s favorite rock anthems by U2, Nirvana, Metallica and Aerosmith.
In December, he landed on Billboard’s Boxscore Chart as one of the top grossing concert acts among Justin Bieber, The Eagles and Metallica.
This concert is a fundraiser for the AETN Foundation, and all proceeds will support programming on AETN, Arkansas’s PBS affiliate and only statewide network.
Tickets range from $30 to $90 and are available on a first come, first served basis. Additional information and tickets are available at www.aetnfoundation.org/boxoffice or 800-662-2386.
