Watch out, Stravinsky... it's the Sinfonietta!

A new music group is in town! Local musicians teamed up to form the Las Vegas Sinfonietta, which will mix classical and contemporary pieces. It kicks off its inaugural concerts on Oct. 22 and 23 with "Stravinsky-esque," a tribute to Bach, Hartmann, and Stravinsky himself. Two of the musicians join us to celebrate Stravinsky and explain how they're changing up the music scene with their new group.

The Las Vegas Sinfonietta will perform a free concert wtih pieces by Stravinsky, Hartmann, and Bach on Friday, Oct. 22, at 7:30 p.m. at UNLV's Doc Rando Hall. It will also perform on Saturday, Oct. 23, at 7:30 p.m. at Green Valley Presbyterian Church.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for.  If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
