Each season, the Atlantic Symphony Orchestra's sonic aficionados provide a warm welcome to select musical guests and masses of fans, who can scratch their itches for sophisticated tunes with both classical and Rockapella concerts. Attendees' ears ring with delight as the a capella group Rockapella—the wittiest quintet since Scooby-Doo—lays down lyrics to hits such as "And the Beat Goes On" and "Dance with Me." Come mid-November, conductor Oliver Knussen will referee concertmaster David Coucheron and principal cellist Christopher Rex during a string-off of Brahms's masterpieces, prepping audiences for Christina Smith's performances later in the turkey month. The principal flutist will show off her mad skills as the sweet notes penned by Mozart erupt from her woodwind with the detailed delicacy matched only by a crocheted doily.
