Each day, our world is getting more and more connected. Everything around us high-tech and “smart”, and we are constantly in a state of sensory overload. We are all multi-taskers – answering e-mails, taking calls, and listening to music on our wireless headphones at the same time. We can reach each other from across the globe instantly and we are always thinking about the next thing. Can you think of the last time you let all of that go to experience just one thing for just thirty minutes? You should give an Atlantic Classical Orchestra concert a try. Here’s why:
The ACO brings the magnificent sound of untouched strings directly to the Treasure Coast.
The music is stripped down to the core, and the beauty comes from the 200 year old instruments that don’t require anything extra to make their rich, vibrant, and beautiful sound. There is no amplification, no plugs or speakers. It is a different kind of sensory overload, one that is valuable, special, and far and few between today. What you may not expect but will come to learn at an ACO concert is the wonderful energy you will experience by being there. A piece takes 30 minutes to play, and in this connected world it is nice to share that experience with several hundred other people. “That experience has human value,” Music Director David Amado shares, “It forces you to just let go – you have to learn to just let go and sink into the moment. Where it takes you is where it takes you. It’s your own experience yet you are sharing in it with several hundred other people in the room.” You will leave feeling mesmerized, in awe, and refreshed. This is energy and art in it’s purest form, and you won’t want to miss it. To experience the Atlantic Classical Orchestra, attend one of their Masterworks concerts this season.
