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 State Theatre in New Brunswick on Sunday, January 20, at 3 p.m. Doors open at 1:30 p.m. Choose between the following seating options:
- For $22, you get one ticket for mid-balcony seating (up to a $45 value, including all fees).
- For $27, you get one ticket for mid-orchestra seating (up to a $55 value, including all fees).<p>
With more than 200 years of military tradition informing its every step, the Black Watch honors the history of the United Kingdom while still 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.”<p>
The State Theatre was saved, as its website states, from "the ravages of time." Built in 1921 as a vaudeville and silent-film palace, the venue fell on hard times in the 1970s. In 2003, however, a $3 million renovation restored the State Theatre to much of its original glory, as crews painstakingly rehabbed the ornamental plaster, terracotta exterior, and actor holding cells. Inside the theater, a stunning chandelier sparkles more brightly than ever below the venue's signature dome.
