Evenings on the Ellipse: Incendio
The Office of Chairman Sharon Bulova wants to invite you to come by Evenings on the Ellipse after work. Thanks to our corporate sponsors, Evenings on the Ellipse is a free and family-friendly concert series we are able to hold each summer. Concerts take place in the back yard of the Fairfax County Government Center (or inside of the building, if the weather chooses not to cooperate). Audience members can bring chairs or blankets, enjoy fresh food from the Farmer's Market (which happens to be in the Fairfax County Government Center parking lot during concerts), taste wine from local vineyards, and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere. What better way is there to kick off the weekend?
An exotic melody accompanies a desert caravan moving beneath a blazing sun. The sound of waves wash against a pristine South American beach. A lone flamenco guitar echoes through the cobbled streets of old Sevilla. And a lilting, three-quarter-time rhythm conjures images of the rolling green hills of Ireland. The music is cinema. It is sound given shape and color. This is the music of Incendio.
