A new challenge from the Arad Philharmonic

As the 2015 – 2016 season started with a resounding event – opera TOSCA at Arad Fortress, now, near the end of the season, we can only offer you a major event again. The challenge is even greater, as the concert venue is the same fascinating Arad Fortress, but the type of the concert we propose is particularly special.

The concert CLASSIC MEETS ROCK will take place Saturday evening, 25 June, starting at 20:30 in front of the Basilica of Arad Fortress. The event is organized in partnership with the Ministry of National Defense – UM 01249 and it is dedicated to the Day of Regiment II – Arad Line Infantry.

We are sure it will be a special evening, with the songs that made legend in the world rock being interpreted in a special creative style. The musical arrangements for the symphonic orchestra will be provided especially for the Arad Philharmonic by Raffaele Minale. At the conductor’s stand will be Italian master Giuseppe Carannate accompanied by a special guest, singer Emanuela Loffredo (Italy), and our wonderful violinist, Florin Gherghel. Those who will respond to our invitation, will have the opportunity to listen to interpretations of songs such as Smoke on The Water (Deep Purple), The Jack (AC / DC), Smells Like Teen Spirit (Nirvana), Jump (Van Halen), Nothing Else Matters (Metallica), November Rain (Guns’n Roses) and many others, and also the extraordinary rock interpretation of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony or the ravishing Palladio signed by Karl Jenkins.

Public access will be free at the symphonic rock concert CLASSIC MEETS ROCK from the Arad Fortress, but based only on invitations that can be picked up at the Arad Philharmonic ticket office (operating inside the Ioan Slavici Classic Theatre, between 9.00 and 13.00) and at the Philharmonic (park entrance, between 16.00 and 18.00). As the location hosting the concert is a military objective, all the persons who take these invitations will be placed on special lists and they will have to present their identity card at the entrance of the fortress. The access of people with foreign citizenship is not allowed.

Let us rejoice together in a unique symphonic rock concert that will showcase the wonderful artistic qualities of the Arad Philharmonic Orchestra musicians, a concert that could not take place without the extraordinary support and understanding received from our partner – the Ministry of National Defense – UM 01249 Arad.
