Called “a jewel in this community” by the Lima News, the Lima Symphony Orchestra has been consistently performing inspiring classical performances since 1953. In "From Russia with Love," the symphony’s talented soundsmiths will recreate Tchaikovsky’s Pathetique and Sergei Prokofiev‘s Violin Concerto no. 1, anchored by the solo stylings of acclaimed Bulgarian violinist Alexandrina Boyanova. "The Power of Percussion" will kinetically present a collection of classic choral music, as well as up-and-coming percussion soloist Lisa Pegher, who can rhythmically tap on everything from the drums to Danny DeVito’s head. To reserve seats, concertgoers can call or stop by the box office with their Groupons Monday–Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Check out the seating chart here. All seats are open to all ticket buyers on a first-come, first-served basis. Reservations are required.
