CPT12 to Premiere “David Arkenstone’s Symphonic Adventure”
Denver (February 5, 2014) – Colorado Public Television (CPT12, channel 12, PBS) will premiere David Arkenstone’s Symphonic Adventure – the concert-turned-television spectacular sprung from the imagination and talent of Grammy-nominated musician David Arkenstone and award-winning producer Victoria Paige Meyerink – on Thursday, February 13, 2104 at 7:00 pm (MST). Mr. Arkenstone will join Shari Bernson live in the CPT12 studio as part of the multi-media presentation.
The program is a dazzling and innovative concert event celebrating Arkenstone’s 25th year in the music industry, and is a cutting-edge blend of spectacle and music that features the incredible acrobatics of Cirque De La Symphonie and their interpretations of David’s epic music. A full symphony orchestra, dancers, Celtic dancers, choir and guest artists including electrifying violinist Karen Briggs (Yanni), piper Eric Rigler (Titanic, Braveheart) and enchanting vocalist Charlee Brooks who join Arkenstone for a magical and inspiring performance for all ages. The show features songs from David’s newest album, Lovéren, along with Grammy-nominated tunes and some of his orchestral favorites. David Arkenstone’s Symphonic Adventure marks the television debut of world-renowned Cirque de la Symphonie, and also features the debut of the Laser Harp concept as enhanced by SpaceHarp, a most unusual “instrument.”
“Colorado Public Television is a leader in presenting new music to our viewers,” said CPT12 Director of Development Shari Bernson. “We’re thrilled to premiere David Arkenstone’s Symphonic Adventure with David live in the studio here in Denver! After its CPT12 debut, the program will be offered to other all PBS stations around the country beginning March 1, 2014, distributed through NETA.”
Says Arkenstone, “The Symphonic Adventure contains a lot of things I’ve always wanted to do in a concert… so, it’s kind of like a dream come true. I’ve always been a strong supporter of PBS stations and I’m very excited for this show to be among the great specials that can only be found on public television. Now we’re looking forward to taking the Symphonic Adventure on tour!”
