As the frigid weather comes and goes, and mountain cedar fever season mercifully comes to an end, February will be filled with fabulous opportunities for the Fine Arts in Boerne! While flowers and chocolates are a fantastic treat for Valentine’s Day, fancy an evening with your special one attending a fantastic production presented by professional performing artists from either side of the globe.
Put on the squeeze…with the famous Accordion Virtuosi of Russia. Close your eyes and you will hear a full symphonic orchestra, when in fact the orchestra consists of 30-plus accordions (both keyboard and button versions). Their musical program will include such classics as Sabre Dance by Khachaturian, Hoe-down from Rodeo (Copland), and Czardas by Bittorio Monti, featuring violin soloist Alexander Yakushev. They will also perform Excerpts from West Side Story and a Joplin Ragtime Dance.
This outstanding ensemble was invited to be part of the cultural program for the Olympics Games in Munich, Montreal and Moscow. They were named the “best accordion orchestra of Europe in 2013” by the orchestral society European Union Musika, and will appear at Champion Auditorium on Thursday, February 15.
Celebrate the sights and sounds of the finest accordion orchestra in the world!
Five nights later, on February 20, Australia’s most debonair musical export – The Ten Tenors – will deliver a dynamic mix of vocal power with their stylized flair that leaves audiences worldwide breathless. This encore performance in Boerne will kick off The Ten Tenors’ 2018 North American Tour, and their 20th anniversary as a musical force that has impressed millions of fans in 29 countries.
The Aussie group will premiere their latest show, Wish You Were Here, a tribute to iconic artists who have left us too soon including Prince, David Bowie, John Lennon, Amy Winehouse, Roy Orbison and more. Fun, impressive and with enough energy to power half the city, The Ten Tenors are straight off their stellar national tour across Australia in 2017. The musical arrangements are slick, fresh and expertly performed…the stadium-feel of the show makes it easy for the audience to get carried along by the infectious energy of the group.
Your Fabulous February in Boerne will be remembered as…Tenor Forever!
