With the advent of cartoon animation, symphonies reached both the masses and a new level of appreciation under the patronage of the great Bugs Bunny. Avoid Elmer Fudd’s buckshot and score seats to the most melodic events of the season with today’s Groupon: for $32, you get one terrace-seat ticket (up to a $65 value) to your choice of performance at the Delta Classic Chastain Park Amphitheater, presented by the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. After purchasing this Groupon, you must call by June 30 to reserve tickets to one of the following shows:
- Liza Minnelli on Friday, July 2 ($65)
- Mary Chapin Carpenter on Saturday, July 17 ($55)
- .38 Special with Drivin’ N’ Cryin’ on Friday, August 13 ($55)
The 27-Grammys-and-counting ASO keeps the summer shows rolling with its outdoor presentations of Liza Minnelli, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and .38 Special. The symphony accompanies Liza as she sings American standards as well as a few intimate renditions with her quartet and Billy Stritch. The ASO hands the musical reins over for the next two concerts, allowing Mary Chapin Carpenter to sing folk and country hits from her two-decade career, including songs from the Grammy-nominated album, The Calling. Finishing the trio with its signature Southern-rock sound is .38 Special, whose string of decade-dominating hits in the ’80s will be joined by songs from more-recent albums.
With so many varied flavors of music represented, this transcendently tuneful threesome of concerts is a summertime activity the whole family can agree on, unlike the Hot Pockets vs. Lean Pockets debate. Head to the openly roofless, 100-year-old-tree-surrounded Delta Classic Chastain Park Amphitheater for a night of popular tunes and transcendent tones.
Must call to reserve ticket no later than June 30, 2010; valid for terrace seats only.
