A night at the symphony not only provides a lasting memory of professionally refined musical prowess but also keeps patrons from reliving the boring routine of watching the TV boil. Musically mix up the routine with today's GrouponLive deal: for $15, you get two first-come, first-served tickets in any available seating section to see Associate Conductor David Cho's farewell performance at Abravanel Hall on August 17 at 7:30 p.m.
In his final appearance as associate conductor of the Utah Symphony, David Cho joins 2010 Gina Bachauer International Piano Competition silver medalist Serhiy Salov in the acoustically pleasing confines of Abravanel Hall. Together, the note-channeling duo performs Sibelius' Third Symphony and Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1 before breaking into a superbly amusing Laurel and Hardy impersonation. While descending the stage of his farewell performance, David Cho will step into the orchestra pit and, like a classically trained butterfly, emerge as the musical director of the Lubbock Symphony Orchestra. The architecturally impressive Abravanel Hall is worth the trip in and of itself, as its luscious acoustics allow symphony-goers to pinpoint staccato eighth notes and falsetto pin drops.
