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 "Edgar Meyer Live!" with Fresno Philharmonic (up to a $68 value) on either Saturday, January 15, 2011, at 8:00 p.m. or Sunday, January 16, 2011, at 2:30 p.m.
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. Bassist Edgar Meyer is a three-time Grammy-award-winning MacArthur Fellow with a masterly catalog of work ranging from chamber and jazz to bluegrass and rock. Meyer will join the Philharmonic to pluck and bow under the magic wand of Music Director Theodore Kuchar. Unlike treehouse poetry slams, the show's performers will dazzle eager audiences in the acoustically exquisite William Saroyan Theatre, an elegant 2,300-seat theatre; call the box office to reserve your performance and seating.
