Artosphere Festival Orchestra Heads Off the Grid
NORTHWEST ARKANSAS, May 25, 2022 – Walton Arts Center’s month-long Artosphere: Arkansas’ Arts + Nature Festival is coming to an end in just a few days, but before that happens you’ll want to catch Artosphere Festival Orchestra members performing as part of Off the Grid on Thursday, May 26.
Off the Grid is one of Artosphere’s signature events. For one evening only, AFO musicians head out into the community to perform pop up concerts in local businesses. This year performances will be centered around Rogers and Fayetteville’s downtown areas. You can enjoy dinner while listening to a string quartet or have a drink while a wind ensemble performs in the bar.
All performances are free and open to the public. This is a great opportunity to see world-class musicians performing outside of a traditional venue setting.
Off the Grid – Fayetteville
Theo’s, 7-8 pm
Arsaga’s Mill District, 8-9 pm
Maxine’s Tap Room, 9-10 pm
Smoke and Barrel, 10-11 pm
Off the Grid – Rogers
