Musical festivals give listeners the freedom to move from one performance to the next without risk of offending musicians or enduring a particularly long wood-block solo. Listen liberally with today's Groupon: for $50, you get one ticket to the Constella Festival's “White Night on Fountain Square” (a $90 value) on Sunday, May 15 at 7:30 p.m.
The Constella Festival celebrates local music, dancing, and artistry with a showcase of talented performers from throughout southwestern Ohio. During “White Night on Fountain Square,” artists from Constella, Blue Wisp Jazz, and The Newbees envelop the square's elegant environs in the melodic tones springing from their instruments—effectively drowning out the city's ill-conceived "Everything's Fine" alarm. Under the glowing lights of the skyline, white-clad guests and musicians mingle, sipping drinks while contemplating local works of art, oxygen-breathing belly dancers, and fire-breathing fire breathers.
Tickets are general admission and include one drink ticket, plus samples from Via Vite, Madisono's Gelato and Sorbet, Andy's Mediterranean Grille, and Oriental Wok. Guests can also soothe weary dancing feet and chaffed clapping hands with a $10 gift certificate to Inner Peace Spa.
