Captain America once said, "'Twas music that soothed the savage beast." Although he was talking about his short-lived nemesis Dr. Angry Parakeet, it's just as true for animals of the human persuasion. Soothe savage insides with today's Groupon: for $15, you get one A-, B-, or C-section ticket to Brahms Symphony No. 2 at the Fresno Philharmonic (up to a $68 value). Shows take place on Saturday, April 30 at 8:00 p.m. and Sunday, May 1 at 2:30 p.m. at the Saroyan Theatre.
For more than 50 years, the Fresno Philharmonic has lavished the San Joaquin Valley's collective ear with orchestral performances featuring internationally celebrated artists and educational programming focused on classical music. Fresno Philharmonic music director and widely recorded conductor Theodore Kuchar assumes the baton for a stirring stroll through Johannes Brahms’s pastoral-toned second symphony, a work brimming with rich string harmonies and lively “Don’t call it a comeback!” refrains. The orchestra will also pluck and tickle to the tunes of Liszt’s Les Préludes and Paul Hindemith’s Mathis der Maler.
The show's performers will dazzle eager audiences in the acoustically exquisite 2,300-seat William Saroyan Theatre. The spectacular sonic feast is matched by the elegant venue’s lobby, which boasts hardwood accents, gleaming chandeliers, and an autographed Mozart rookie card. Call the box office to reserve your performance date and seating.
