In its 57th season, the Fresno Philharmonic showcases classical masterworks and popular tunes from Hollywood, including music from The Wizard of Oz. Rather than relive the film’s sonic majesty by stuffing a Dorothy doll into a tuba, fans can soak in “Oz with Orchestra,” a musical extravaganza that couples a projection of the classic film with the sonic textures of a live orchestral arrangement. Today’s Groupon ushers guests to red-velvet seats, where they can witness each flick of Maestro Theodore Kuchar’s baton. In celebration of Halloween, the philharmonic encourages attendees to wear costumes or life-size candy wrappers to the performance. With a midafternoon start time, this family-friendly show makes an ideal outing for the entire family.
The Fresno Philharmonic performs at the 2,353-seat Saroyan Theatre, whose acoustically advanced interior contains solid brass doors and gleaming chandeliers that lower themselves after hours to go moonlighting as moonlight. In addition to performing concerts at the Saroyan, the orchestra serves the community through numerous educational outreach initiatives.
