Captain America once said, "'Twas music that soothed the savage beast." Although he was talking about his short-lived nemesis Dr. Angry Parakeet, it's just as true for animals of the human persuasion. Soothe savage insides with today's Groupon: for $65, you get a three-show pass to the Allentown Symphony Hall on N. 6th St (up to a $135 value). This Groupon can be redeemed for one admission to any three symphony or family performances in the 2010–11 season. It can also be redeemed for three admissions to one performance. Call ahead to reserve seats, which will be the best available in the orchestra-level or balcony.
The warm tones of jazz saxophones, the orchestrated quarrels between flutes and oboes, and the reanimated bellows of Elvis Presley can be heard resonating within the walls of the 1,200-seat Allentown Symphony Hall, which has housed the likes of Placido Domingo, Bing Crosby, and Sarah Bernhardt. The venue's schedule swells with symphonic and non-orchestral showings including performances by the Allentown Symphony Orchestra, Jim Brickman's 15th Anniversary Holiday Concert, California Raisins, Steve Lippia presenting "Simply Sinatra," and more.
