Live music is a huge improvement on canned music, which takes up valuable pantry space and often spoils into noxious free jazz. Keep it fresh with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get one full orchestra concert ticket to the Scarborough Philharmonic Orchestra (up to a $30 value) at Birchmount Park Collegiate Institute.
Under the helm of music director and conductor Ronald Royer, the Scarborough Philharmonic Orchestra celebrates its 32nd concert season by whipping up sonic banquets of classical and contemporary music. Ears strained from overtime work testing dog whistles revel in the rich, haunting melodies coaxed from the page by Maestro Royer’s graceful gesticulations during performances of Brahms’ A German Requiem and Schubert’s Symphony no. 8 in B Minor on Saturday, February 25. On Saturday, March 31, the "Fantastique!" concert kicks off with a performance of Berlioz’s epic Symphonie Fantastique followed by 15-year-old soloist Julia Mirzoev’s moving rendition of Camille Saint-Saëns’ Violin Concerto no. 3. The Scarborough Philharmonic Orchestra also plans on two more 2012 full orchestra concert events at the Birchmount Park Collegiate Institute in October and December (see concert season schedule online for updates).
Scarborough Philharmonic Orchestra’s ticket prices vary based on age.
