Timeless Concerts Presents the Sound of Music in Austria

Save the date: Saturday, July 15 - 8 pm at the Arlington Museum of Art.

The musicians of Timeless Concerts are excited to introduce the Trio Phantasy of Austrian composer Joseph Marx (1882-1964) to our audience! Marx, born in Graz, the capital of Austria, studied violin, cello and piano, and took degrees in philosophy and art history, all the while composing music at Graz University. He obtained the position of professor of theory at the Vienna Music Academy. He also was an adviser to the Turkish government in laying the foundations of a conservatory in Ankara. Marx's music drew from many sources. He could be called a late romantic impressionist. Although one can hear certain affinities with the music of Debussy, Ravel, Respighi, Richard Strauss, Brahms, and Mahler, his sound is nonetheless his own.

Of course, we cannot have an Austrian themed concert without including music of the famous musical, that portrayed the Von Trapp family of Austria: The Sound of Music by Rodgers and Hammerstein! We promise two sing-alongs! Our opera singers will also represent Austria with arias by Mozart from Don Giovanni and more.

A post-concert party included in the ticket price. Give your requests to pianist Erik Barnes. Enjoy a buffet of fruit/cheese/desserts, along with a cash bar or BYOB. Tickets and concert info can be found on the Timeless Concerts' website. General admission is $32, senior 60+ $27, college student $15 and youth 11-17 may attend free with 1 paying adult.

Inaugural Arlington Sante Fe International Folk Art Market

Robert Earl Keen Concert at the Levitt Pavillion Arlington

Baylor Orthopedic & Spine Hospital presents Robert Earl Keen Friday, June 23, at Levitt Pavilion Arlington for a paid-ticket concert. The evening begins at 7:30 p.m. with popular Texas artist, Cory Morrow. Robert Earl Keen's concert begins at 9 p.m. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Tuesday, March 21, through the Levitt’s website. Tickets are $65 for reserved VIP seating at the front of the lawn and $35 for general admission seating. All ticket sales are online.

Three decades after the release of his debut album, "No Kinda Dancer," with 18 recordings to his name and thousands of shows in his rear-view mirror, Keen has blazed a peer-, critic- and fan-lauded trail that’s earned him living legend status in Americana music and at home in Texas. It was 1989’s "West Textures" album, and the debut of “The Road Goes On Forever” in particular, that kicked Keen's career into high gear. His literate songwriting and razor wit created a grassroots following for instant classics like “Corpus Christi Bay,” “Whenever Kindness Fails,” “Gringo Honeymoon,” “Dreadful Selfish Crime” and “Merry Christmas From the Family.” Proceeds from the Robert Earl Keen concert help the Levitt provide more than 50 free concerts for everyone to enjoy.
