Want to see some really talented, classically-trained musicians playing in some unexpected places?

Tonight’s your night. Members of the Artosphere Festival Orchestra will be performing at a handful of bars and restaurants in Fayetteville tonight (Thursday, May 26).

The performances are part of their “Off the Grid” series of shows in unique places outside of the concert halls where you’d typically find them. Tonight, the musicians will perform at Theo’s, Arsaga’s Mill District, Maxine’s Tap Room, and Smoke & Barrel Tavern in Fayetteville, and Yeyo’s in Rogers.

In addition to these public performances, members of AFO have taken classical music performances to other places around the region this month as well, including Northwest Arkansas Children’s Shelter, Ability Tree in Siloam Springs, New Beginnings, Siloam Springs Public Library, Haas Hall Academy at The Jones Center and Ozark Natural Foods.

Thursday’s Off the Grid performances are free and open to the public. A full schedule of tonight’s pop-ups are below.
