What You'll Get
Seeing live music can be a transcendent mind-body experience, akin to getting a tattoo underwater or making out during an eclipse. Transcend boredom with today's GrouponLive deal: for $10, you get one reserved ticket to Minnesota Orchestra's "Symphony in 60" at Orchestra Hall on Saturday, February 25, at 8 p.m. Seating is located on the main floor and in tier 1, and is assigned on a best-available basis. Happy hour begins at 7 p.m., although drinks are not included in this Groupon.
Minnesota Orchestra celebrates its second century as one of America’s premier symphonic ensembles, gathering accolades from publications such as the New York Times. Audiences are invited to savor the classics without inhibitions or iron cummerbunds with "Symphony in 60." Taking on Edward Elgar's In the South and Beethoven’s Symphony no. 7, known for its popular Allegretto movement, the steadfast hands of wand-waver Courtney Lewis steer a brisk hour of illustrious music with no intermission. Before the symphony starts at 8 p.m., patrons are invited to a 7 p.m. happy hour to carouse and gather libations (drinks not included with this Groupon). Unlike most classical outings and police cars, guests are allowed to bring their drinks to their seats and fraternize with the musicians after the show.
Concerts take place at Orchestra Hall, where a wooden floor with a one-inch separation from its supporting structure enhances the evening's acoustics, enlivening orchestral sounds and preventing midair collisions between muddled notes.
