For two glorious weeks June 1-14 our city exudes great music. This is the 19th year for the Hot Springs Music Festival and we at Lookout Point Inn are honored to be a sponsor once again for an event which is exhilarating and full of many musical concerts and open rehearsals.
This Festival pairs world-class mentor musicians from major orchestras, chamber ensembles and conservatory faculties with incredibly talented pre-professional apprentices. These two groups play the most incredible music “side by side” in orchestral, chamber, solo recital, vocal, and choral and chamber opera repertoire. It is a feast for music lovers from around the globe.
Last year more than 10,000 people attended the Festival events and an additional 6.4 million heard its concerts on nationwide radio broadcasts. It also appears on nine compact discs distributed worldwide on the Naxos/Marco Polo label.
The two weeks of music is serious in focus but performed in a casual atmosphere. It takes place in a variety of non-traditional venues in Hot Springs including historic buildings, art galleries, hotel ballrooms, churches and open-air spaces. Hot Springs is such a great place to host this unique event. In addition to the great music, Hot Springs offers Bathhouse Row with the hot mineral water baths, the National Park trails, the eclectic restaurants and cafes, Garvan Woodland Gardens, art galleries, and much more.
