A night at the symphony not only provides a lasting memory of refined musical prowess; it also keeps patrons from resorting to the boring routine of watching the TV boil. Mix up the routine with today's GrouponLive deal to see "Musical Landscapes", presented by the Livonia Symphony Orchestra at the Louis Schmidt Auditorium in Livonia on Saturday, October 8, at 4 p.m. Doors open at 3 p.m., and all seating is general admission. Choose between the following options:
- For $20, you get two tickets (up to a $40 value).
- For $35, you get four tickets (up to an $80 value).
Under the energetic guidance of accomplished music director and international conductor Volodymyr Shesiuk, the Livonia Symphony fills its season with classical pieces as well as Broadway, jazz, and pop tunes. In "Musical Landscapes," violins lead rich-toned cellos and kettledrums topped with safari hats into strange and distant lands with pieces such as Borodin's In the Steppes of Central Asia, which sonically transcribes the vastness of deserts and low skies. Grofé's Grand Canyon Suite sees its sweeping melodies paired with a picture presentation of the geographical wonder, juxtaposing images of the mature canyon's vistas with photos of it rolling its eyes during its teenage years. A preceding Brahms overture and Bizet's L'Arlesienne Suite no. 2 round out the night of majestic euphony.
Though the Livonia Symphony offers student discounts online, this Groupon offers the best deal available for most patrons.
