Sep 27-28 - “Viva South America!” featuring The Alturas Duo with Gonzalo Cortes, Fargo-Moorhead Symphony Orchestra’s season opener. Christopher Zimmerman, Music Director. Sep 27, 7:30pm; and Sep 28, 2pm in the NDSU Festival Concert Hall. Free pre-concert talk begins 45 minutes before each concert in adjacent Beckwith Recital Hall, with conductor and soloists. Tickets at www.fmsymphony.org or 701-489-3676. Music Director Christopher Zimmerman has invited the ALTURAS DUO and GONZALO CORTES to perform a piece written specifically for them in which they perform on Chilean musical instruments as soloists in front of the orchestra. Danzas Peregrinas (Dance of the Pilgrims) by Horacio Salinas will feature Scott Hill on guitar, Carlos Boltez on charango (a Chilean stringed instrument originally made from an armadillo shell), and flutist Gonzalo Cortes on pan flute. These classically trained musicians are devoting their performing careers to bringing the music of Chile and South America to American audiences and schools. The Alturas Duo has been recognized as one of the most engaging ensembles performing in the chamber music world today. The only group of its kind, the Duo was formed with the idea of playing South American and classical music by bringing together the unusual combination of the viola, charango and guitar, and in doing so, creating passionate music that moves at ease between the Baroque, South American folk rhythms and new pieces written especially for the Duo. www.alturasduo.com/about.html. Tickets for the Masterworks concert are $25 - $35 for Adults and $10 - $15 for Students (including college), available at www.fmsymphony.org and by calling 478-3676. Tickets are also available at the door beginning one hour before concert time

Oct 4-5 - The Studio Crawl was established in 2004 to develop an awareness and appreciation for the quality and diversity of the visual arts in our region. During the free two-day event, the public is invited into the studios of the many working artists in the Fargo Moorhead area. Visiting the artists in their element is a dynamic educational experience, demystifing art’s “making” process. The Crawl is one of the only opportunities in the community to visit with visual artists in their studio spaces. By allowing visitors into the studios to converse with the artists about their ‘making’ process will expand the viewing experience and deepen the appreciation of the work and the efforts of the artists. The Crawl is, most importantly, a community education event — it serves thousands of attendees each year. In conjunction with the Crawl, the Plains Art Museum offers the Kid Crawl, during which parents can drop off their children for structured visual arts experiences while their parents tour local studios.
