ORH Concerts and the Old Rock House are excited to announce the second annual Art Of Live Festival. The festival aims to celebrate live music and St. Louis’ diverse collection of live music venues.
The festival takes place over four nights at five local venues and features more than two-dozen local, national, and international musical artists. Participating venues include: Old Rock House, Off Broadway, The Firebird, The Demo, and The Ready Room. There will be individual tickets available for each concert as well as full festival wristbands that will grant access to all of these events.
The name for the Art of Live Festival is derived from the James Michener quote:
The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he’s always doing both.
Festival organizers felt that this quote best captured the passion that so many feel towards the concert industry.
“Live concerts are unique in that there are no passive participants,” said Tim Weber, managing partner of the Old Rock House and ORH Concerts. “Fans, promoters, bands, security- we actively and collectively create the experience- the art- together. That is what we are celebrating with the Art of Live festival.”
