The Scintas with The Akron Symphony Orchestra
For one evening, The Scintas transform Akron into the Las Vegas of yore. Taking a break from their usual routine headlining shows in Las Vegas, the family band usually consisting of brothers Joe and Frank and Peter (the adopted Scinta) delivers an extravagant, old-fashioned production. The Scintas croon standards and give modern hits the showtune treatment. When the music pauses, they crack corny zingers with rim-shot punctuation and toss off spot-on imitations of figures such as Ray Charles, Neil Diamond, and, now that they're safely out of reach, the mayor of Las Vegas. "They have that authentic, old-Vegas chemistry up there," wrote Mike Weatherford in a recent Las Vegas Review-Journal review, noting that "they are the best at what they do." The Akron Civic Orchestra makes the songs swell and swing to fill every inch of the auditorium with warm sound and good cheer.
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.
