Almost anything can be improved with music, as evidenced by tuba-accompanied balcony serenades, operatic State of the Union addresses, and yodeled bank statements. Tune your ears to the sweet sounds on stage with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get two tickets to the Doug Cameron jazz-violin concert on Sunday, February 27 at 5 p.m. at Alliance for the Arts' Alliance Margaret Morrow Frizzell open-air amphitheater in Fort Myers (a $30 value).
Performing for the Bruce T. Gora Sunday Sunset concert series, Los Angeles jazz-violinist Doug Cameron will musically dish out sprightly compositions brimming with Celtic, country, and classical influences as he draws from his eight albums. In the past, Cameron has performed for films and commercials and alongside recording artists Cher, George Benson, and Tom Petty, rubbing his blue electric violin with a stringed bow to induce deep, lively melodies that will inspire listeners to raise their “#1 violin” foam hands. Turn your ears to the melancholy pitch of a Celtic goodbye or the dynamic fortissimos of a squealing jazz tune. Gates open for the concert at 4 p.m.
- The concert could only be described as an electrifying, energetic, invigorating and enjoyable showcase of the featured artist’s talent and training. – Ronald Bennett, Odessa American
