Without direction, orchestral musicians would wander down the interstate, creating a beautiful yet distracting soundtrack during morning commutes. Enjoy an appropriately placed ensemble with today's Groupon: for $75, you get two VIP tickets to the Arapahoe Philharmonic's Spring Pops Gala (a $150 value) on Saturday, April 9 at 7:30 p.m. at The Wildlife Experience museum in Parker.
For nearly 60 years, the Arapahoe Philharmonic has played the classical music of historical composers and modern musicians to audiences around Denver. The orchestra's Spring Pops Gala will feature the music of Rodgers and Hammerstein, the American songwriting duo whose musicals, including The Sound of Music and The King and I, have won a slew of Tony, Oscar, and Grammy awards. VIP ticket holders can slip in early for a Two Rivers wine tasting at 6:00 p.m., enjoying sips of vino and a variety of hors d’oeuvres. Curiosity-seekers can caravan a short safari through the animal- and plant-life exhibits of The Wildlife Experience museum, taking care to park impatient camels outside the venue before settling back into the reserved-seating area for a sonic adventure with the orchestra.
