Artist Series Concerts of Sarasota Presents “The First Family of Violin” Alexander, Albert and Marina Markov on October 2

Arts & Culture

Artist Series Concerts of Sarasota opens its 27th season, Ever Onward, on October 2, 4:00 p.m. with a concert in the Virtuoso Violins Series presented at Sarasota Opera House. The Magnificent Markovs is two generations of concert violinists – Alexander Markov and his parents Albert and Marina – performing together in a family-friendly concert experience that also features Key Chorale and the Booker High School VPA Choir. Concert tickets are $30-$50; post-concert reception available for a separate charge of $35 per person. For more information and tickets, visit ArtistSeriesConcerts.org or call (941) 306-1202. The first part of the concert features the Markovs playing classical favorites by Paganini, Schubert, Prokofiev, and others.  Following intermission, Alexander takes the stage with Key Chorale, the Booker High School VPA Choir, an orchestra, a rhythm section, and his 24-karat-gold-plated six-string electric violin to perform “Caesar,” his original composition about the legendary Roman general and statesman. Classical, rock, and pop music combine in this four-part piece full of mystery, drama, color, and contrasts. Alexander’s stop in Sarasota falls between a just-finished European tour and an appearance at Carnegie Hall in November.
