For $7, you get one ticket for general-admission seating in the orchestra on Saturday, February 9, at 8 p.m. (a $15 value). Doors open at 7 p.m.
Zoso – The Ultimate Led Zeppelin Experience inhabits the look, sound, and spirit of the biggest rock band of the '70s, mesmerizing fans with the accuracy of its portrayal. Formed in 1995 to replenish the nation's dwindling classic-rock reservoirs, the four permanent members of Zoso live in their heroes’ skins, nailing every note, nuance, and occasional charley horse. The live act draws from dozens of hits to recreate a quintessential '70s experience, earning the band critical acclaim, a dedicated following, and approving gusts of hair-ruffling wind blown by John Bonham’s ghost.
E.J. Thomas Hall
Since 1973, The University of Akron's E.J. Thomas Hall has been the center of Akron's performing arts scene. The three-level facility, which occupies three acres of The University of Akron campus, boasts a massive, 44-ton movable ceiling that can shift to enclose the first or second levels. The position of the ceiling has a dramatic effect on the hall's volume and acoustics, so it is controlled by a computer precisely managing 27 counterweights. The hall's ability to transform from an intimate one-level performance space to a vast three-level concert hall allows it to host performances of a variety of sizes and styles by university students and faculty as well as the Akron Symphony Orchestra, the Tuesday Musical Association, the Children’s Concert Society, and the Akron Youth Symphony.
