Celebrating its 35th anniversary, the Atlantic 10 Conference stimulates collegiate competition between 14 universities. Baseball fans may make their way to any one of the tournament’s four days of competition: watch teams find their footing during session one, see them survive the steady stakes increases of session two and three, or nervously devour a box of Cracker Jack and engagement rings during the championship session four. Each fun pack arrives with an array of goodies to enhance the nine-inning experience, including a ticket to the tournament day of your choice (an $8 value for adults and a $4 value for children, students, or senior citizens), a championship program (a $2 value), an A-10 koozie for cola-can cold-keeping (a $5 value), and an A-10 keychain (a $1 value) designed to fit into most standard sweatshirt hoods.
A nonprofit organization and professional training orchestra, Symphony C prepares burgeoning maestros for world-class careers. Held on May 7, Symphony in C's "Lyrical Romance" performance features the talented bow work of guest violinist Soovin Kim. Concertgoers will be treated to the lithe and luxurious string-stylings of Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto, Op. 35 in D and Sibelius's Symphony no. 2, Op. 43 in D, originally conceived as an ode to the Finnish composer's pet parakeet "D." Devoted to community-arts engagement, Symphony in C serves more than 90,000 music fans annually through its critically acclaimed performances, education outreach, radio broadcasts, and resin-rich high fives.
More than half a century ago, three partners raised a vibrant, multicolored tent on an underdeveloped industrial site and established the Westbury Music Fair. It followed its first production, The King and I, with a decade of top-name talent and Broadway musicals. Then, recognizing its place on the theater scene was permanent, it planted its roots as a fully enclosed theater-in-the-round. Expanding its repertoire to match its new digs, the theater showcased performers such as The Who, Bruce Springsteen, and Julie Andrews. Today, past a lounge blazing in purple and red lights, guests find that same circular stage hosting equally great musical acts, musical theater, and competitive musical chairs.
