Dying to cross the pond this summer but cant afford the airline ticket? No worries -- just stay put and let Europe come to you. Austrias Arpeggione Chamber Orchestra is making a return trip to participate in Summerfest 2007. The orchestra will join the Symphony of the Americas -- South Floridas international orchestral ensemble -- for concerts July 15 through August 26 from Miami to Melbourne.
The Arpeggione Chamber Orchestra features topnotch soloists and a diverse repertoire honed through many performances across Europe.
