A concert of folk and classical music at Sun Mountain Lodge gives people one more reason to give thanks this weekend.

The concert on Friday (Nov. 24) features Ariel Horowitz, a classical violinist who performs around the world, with two versatile Methow Valley musicians, singer/songwriter Laura Love and guitarist Terry Hunt.

Horowitz first met Love about a decade ago, when Horowitz was just 12 years old and already an up-and-coming violinist. Love invited Horowitz to join her onstage during a concert tour in Ohio.

“There was a violin microphone positioned for me and I played a short classical piece,” said Horowitz. “I will never forget that experience. I think these early experiences helped to form me as a different kind of classical musician.”

This year Love and Hunt extended another invitation to Horowitz — to join them for a concert in the Methow Valley — and Horowitz readily accepted. “I can’t wait to perform — this time with Laura Love and doing some of her songs,” she said.

Horowitz and Hunt will play a suite of tangos by Astor Piazzolla. The three will team up on folk music by Love and other songwriters. Horowitz also promises solo violin pieces by Bach.

The concert is at 7 p.m. in the Pasayten Room at Sun Mountain Lodge. Tickets are $20 general admission and $5 for students.

A concert featuring Horowitz, originally scheduled at Confluence Gallery on Saturday (Nov. 25), has been cancelled.
