Music is all around us—in the wind, the rain, and the weird sounds that children make. Listen to something that’s actually been rehearsed with this GrouponLive deal to see Pipes and Drums of the Black Watch featuring the Band of the Scots Guards at the Music Hall Center for the Performing Arts. For $99, you get a family four-pack with four tickets for seating in rows E–X of sections 1–4 on Saturday, February 9, at 8 p.m. (up to a $238 value, including all fees). Doors open at 7 p.m.
With more than 200 years of military tradition informing its every step, the Black Watch honors the history of the United Kingdom while serving as an operational battalion in the British Army. Aided by the bagpipes of the Band of the Scots Guards, the regiment combines ceremonial marches with traditional music and a connoisseur’s eye for fuzzy hats. Included in the program are such classic anthems as “Amazing Grace,” “Bluebells of Scotland,” “Ode to Joy,” and “Rising of the Lark.”
Detroit Music Hall Center for the Performing Arts
Built in 1928, Detroit Music Hall Center for the Performing Arts dazzles patrons with an ornate art-deco façade and lush Spanish Renaissance interior. Elegant columns, glittering chandeliers, and vibrant geometric patterns create a palatial atmosphere in the lobby. The auditorium's intimately arranged velvet seats leave every viewer within 70 feet of the stage, eliminating the need for binoculars or drawn-out games of telephone describing the onstage action.
