Orchestra pits, like fruit pits, contain a symphony’s essence and are best fertilized with rich soil by a landscaping grandma.

This Groupon is valid for any Gold Level seat on Tuesday, November 9 at 7:30 pm.
“Days in the Orient, Nights in Arabia” utilizes the Conway Symphony Orchestra’s skilled instrument wranglers to narrate the saga of "One Thousand and One Nights" through a growing flourish of vividly orchestrated music. The melodious tale of the cultured Persian queen Scheherazade is known throughout the world, still captivating audiences who fear for the queen’s life as she crafts riveting yarns to win over the heavily preserved heart of her murderous king. The symphony's ability to weave multi-hued pictures through music brings a fresh perspective to storytelling, making this establishment a sought-after community center of entertainment. The performance features the tones and scales of Middle Eastern music, and also introduces contemporary Chinese compositions inspired by the Fujian Province for a symphonic experience that’s as globally influenced as the lunchboxes in the U.N. break room.
