Here Are Some of Our Favorite December Events in Central Oregon
Aaron Meyer Concert – Rock Violinist | December 1
This musical event will be held at the Sunriver Resort at 6:30pm on the 1st of December.
Aaron Meyer captivates audiences worldwide with his electrifying stage presence.
Aaron’s unique stage presence blended with awe-inspiring virtuosic performances immediately engages his fans, displaying an affinity for the violin in a seemingly effortless mastery of the instrument.
Pink Martini’s original violinist creates his own unique style and brand.
Aaron’s cutting edge musical style was inspired by his worldwide travels. After performing as an original band member for the world-renowned band Pink Martini, he recorded on the album Sympathique (which sold a million copies worldwide), Aaron then refined his own brand of music.
Aaron blends original music with cutting-edge arrangements of timeless classics.
His broad range of music includes everything from a dynamic rendition of Vivaldi’s “The Four Seasons” to his exquisite versions of Pink Floyd’s “Comfortably Numb,” Led Zeppelin’s “Kashmir,” and the Beatles classic “Let it Be.” Whenever he performs, he connects with audiences of all ages, cultures and backgrounds from all around the world.
“Aaron brings a unique and gorgeous voice to the violin. He has combined lyricism and amazing technique to become one of the best violinists around.” – Phil Baker, Pink Martini
