ALT ASO

Highland Brewing

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2022, 7:00 P.M.

Darko Butorac, conductor

Nicole Zuraitis, vocalist

 

For this ALT ASO concert, we go back to where the series began: Highland Brewing’s gorgeous Event Center. The last time we performed an ALT ASO concert at Highland Brewing, it sold out in just three days. Featuring Grammy-nominated jazz vocalist Nicole Zuraitis as soloist, this program will highlights the music of the 70s — but not just the 1970s! Prepare for a musical tour-de-force featuring music from the 1670s, 1770s, 1870s and 1970s — meaning the music of Mozart, Beethoven and Tchaikovsky alongside the Eagles, Stevie Wonder, Carole King, Gloria Gaynor and Queen!

Have a beer to support the Asheville Symphony! As if you needed an excuse to taste another Highland Brewing beer, $1 of each purchase of this events signature beer — Feelin’ Groovy Hazy Pale Ale — supports your Asheville Symphony. So drink up (responsibly) and enjoy!
