Murfreesboro Symphony Orchestra has spent the last three decades filling theaters to the brim with classical, fluid tunes that spill out of instruments of professional musicians. The orchestra continues to feed famished ears with notes of nourishment by hosting An Evening with Andrew Risinger, which puts the organ center stage to emit both classic and popular pieces full of texture and decibels. Unlike an ensemble of feral cats and broken mufflers, Risinger's ivory tickling will win over sonic senses with compositions such as "Rhapsody for Flute & Organ" by John Weaver and "If With All Your Hearts" from Elijah by Felix Mendelssohn. Witness the orchestra team up with the energetic conductor Kelly Corcoran for American Landscapes to pay an audible homage to the land of the free, stuffing your ear canals with musical hot dogs as violins pluck their strings to classic songs by American composers.
27 Drive-In carries on the classic American tradition of watching the silver screen from the reclined seats of an automobile. On Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at around 8:30 p.m., two towering screens show recent cinematic releases to audience members cozily nestled in laughing Hondas, transfixed Volvos, and sobbing Saturns. Movie-goers motor through a two-lane ticket booth before parking and dialing the radio to an FM station broadcasting the movie’s sound. Anticipated flicks such as Contagion enthrall viewers this September, and the Twilight sequel, Breaking Dawn: Part I will cause theater grass to do sit-ups to withstand getting flattened by the horde of oncoming vehicles.
