For more than 75 years, Milwaukee's Festival City Symphony has performed lively renditions of classic masterpieces in casual concerts that please the ears of children and learned music students alike. In the family-friendly "Tell Me a Story," the orchestra warms up audiences with Rossini's La Cenerentola, a 19th century operatic version of Cinderella. The sparkling strains of Igor Stravinsky's ballet The Fairy Kiss mimic the light, dashing footsteps of pixies and other assorted fantasy folk. Finally, an exuberant performance of Ravel's Mother Goose Suite depicts a host of famous fairy tales such as Sleeping Beauty and Beauty and the Beast. Against the lush backdrop of the historic Pabst Theater, the orchestra’s music brings timeless tales to life.
Though the Festival Symphony offers discounted tickets for $8 for student and seniors, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
