In the midst of our busy, multitasking lives, the recital experience offers something different, something needed: a pure connection. With our fellow audience members, with the artists on stage—but, more than anything, with the music. We stop for an hour or two, put down our phones, and allow the music to speak to us through its finely-trained and consummate ambassadors, who are—as described by Van Cliburn—but its witnesses and messengers. It is a seemingly paradoxical, uniquely valuable time when we can commune with others for a journey that is, at its core, introspective.
Our guarantee for these Cliburn Concerts is to bring the world’s best witnesses and messengers to Fort Worth’s finest concert venues each season to deliver some of the best music ever written directly to you. We hope to connect with you soon.
