The Sunriver Music Festival and the High Desert Museum are collaborating on a festive Christmas event that will feature Classical Rock Violinist Aaron Meyer, guitarist Tim Ellis and their four-piece band. On the evening of Friday, December 13, the museum will open for a special viewing of the museum’s exhibits, a full concert and tasty brews provided by the Sunriver Brewing Company.
Meyer performs cutting edge original music and arrangements with virtuosity and passion. He brings his fresh and invigorating instrumental style to the stage and genuinely connects with audiences of all ages.
Meyer’s unique brand of music bridges world, contemporary progressive rock and classical genres. A classically trained violinist since age five, Meyer debuted with the Philadelphia Orchestra at age 11 and has soloed with major international symphony orchestras and ballet companies, in addition to performing for many world leaders and dignitaries. Meyer has worked with vastly contrasting artists such as Pink Martini, Smokey Robinson, Aaron Neville, The Temptations, Leftover Salmon, 2002 Miss America – Katie Harman and the platinum record selling band, Everclear.
Meyer’s love for young people and education inspired him to create his unique music educational programs, including his Classroom Music Project (CMP). Aaron and guitarist Tim Ellis will bring the three-day CMP residency program to Three Rivers School on December 11– 13. All students K – 8 will participate in writing lyrics, creating songs and producing their own CD over the three-day program.

Tickets are $35 for general admission and $30 for members of either the Sunriver Music Festival or the High Desert Museum. Youth (18 and under) are $10.
