Like cheese, classical music is best enjoyed when in string form. Snack on the sounds of cultured compositions with today's Groupon: for $16, you get one section-two ticket to the Cleveland Orchestra’s concert at Blossom Music Center on Sunday, August 28 at 7 p.m. (a $32 value).
Set in the rolling hills of Cuyahoga Falls, the Blossom Festival summer series welcomes the Cleveland Orchestra on August 28, yielding center stage for a night of world-class classical music. Settle into a pavilion seat and treat ears to a cochlear night out as conductor James Feddeck leads the orchestra through a series of heartstring-plucking pieces, such as Britten’s Variations and Fugue on a Theme of Purcell, Bernstein’s Three Dance Episodes, and Elgar’s In the South. Relax as the music and breeze wash over the crowd, letting the smooth rhythms and swaying melodies fight for ears’ adoration and the last stick of gum.
Since 1968, the Blossom Festival has wooed audiences with its breathtaking setting, professional performances, elegant architecture, and willingness to lend its jacket to chilly dinner dates. Wrangle together a group of close friends, family members, or music-loving cattle and enjoy a serene and stress-free summer night outdoors. To ensure growling stomachs don’t steal the stage, bring a prepacked picnic for before the show, or mosey over to the Blossom Grille for full-service dining.
