Live @ First 2017
A Classical Concert Series
Live@First is great classical music. It’s gutsy artists. Unrestrained expression. Thrilling interpretations of the classics and enthralling new creations. It’s artists straight from the great performance halls of the world and artists that are about to take the world by storm. There’s no frills and no dress code…just great music and powerful performances.
