Once a thoughtful handmade gift, the mixtape has fallen on hard times in the digital era. But the Asheville Symphony hasn’t given up on the mixtape, preserving the form in the lounge of West Asheville’s Isis Music Hall. Just for Amadeus, the Opal String Quartet has created a live mixtape with some of their favorite works both in and out of the quartet genre, including the music of Maurice Ravel, Philip Glass and The Flaming Lips.
To purchase tickets, call 828.254.7046 or visit the Asheville Symphony office at 27 College Place, Suite 100, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday-Friday, or order online using the buy ticket link
