I’m posting this on behalf of a friend who is involved in this festival and all the photos are NOT from the Arts Evolution Music Festival. They were from the Ho Hai Yan Rock Festival earlier this year. We happened upon the last hours of the festival in Yilan when we went on our around the island trip this year.
I didn’t want to have a post without photos, sorry if it is confusing:
Come join us at the first Arts Evolution Music Festival, brought to you by Ji-Ee Charitable Foundation and Dreamland Concert Hall. Presenting four highly imaginative and creative performances in two days, each with its own unique element and collaboration, the Arts Evolution Music Festival strives to transcend boundaries of styles, genres, traditions, and cultures. With genuine curiosity, we explore all kinds of possibility to express classical music to make it accessible, attainable, and available for all. We find a common ground in Folk music, Classical music, Jazz, and even old popular songs, and we invite the theatrical and visual elements to create a context that could resonate with everyone. Joined by the Mini Street Fair and musicians from three continents, this is classical music as you have never experienced before!
Saturday, 12/21 7:30 pm
Carmen Fantasy presents internationally-claimed guitar virtuoso Alfredo Muro with a whole array of sensational guitar master pieces, and a genius re-interpretation of Bizet’s famous opera “Carmen”. Fused with Gypsy fiddling, jazz, and Taiwanese folk songs, this production depicts the Carmen that that is fearless, passionate, and rule-breaking. The story is being portrait by an ensemble of nine stellar musicians. It is drama, music, and liberation of performing art!
Sunday 1pm Music on Canvas, an outdoor concert especially designed for children age 3 and up. A collaboration with “Right and Left Children’s Art Studio”, the children are invited to get inside the music of Mozart Flute Quartet and Dohnanyi Serenade for String Trio, and to express their listening experience through painting and creating art together.

An outdoor concert of traditional Irish folk music and 17th century Baroque music, this is where tradition is preserved with new spirits, and boundaries are respected but redefined.
