While studying to classical music is known to boost academic performance, distracting your fellow classmates with sporadic blasts from crash cymbals guarantees good grades. Get ahead with today's Groupon: for $25, you get one center balcony-level ticket to the Portland Symphony Orchestra’s performance of The Golden Age of Motown (a $50 value) at the Merrill Auditorium in downtown Portland. Choose between two show dates:
- Saturday, February 12 at 7:30 p.m.
- Sunday, February 13 at 2:30 p.m.
The Portland Symphony Orchestra performs myriad melodic masterpieces under the guidance of esteemed music director Robert Moody. The PSO commences a two-performance run of The Golden Age of Motown, a symphonic throwback to Motown classics with special guests Tituss Burgess and Joy Lynn Matthews providing velvety vocals. Raucously bob your head as the orchestra plucks and toots their musical vessels to such favorites as "The Tracks of My Tears", "I Heard It Through the Grapevine", and "Ain't No Mountain High Enough." Soul-steeped medleys pay tribute to musical groundbreakers such as The Jackson Five, Smokey Robinson, The Supremes, and The Temptations in this 50th anniversary tribute to the original Motown record label.
- A season of great music that crosses tempo, style and mood but never strays far from an anchoring principle of musical excellence. – Bob Keyes, The Portland Press Herald
