Until science allows customized breezes to play concertos through trees and tuned blades of grass, people must fetch their concertos from live musicians. Today's Groupon sings to the ears with premium orchestra-seat tickets to Symphonic Blockbusters! by the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra for $20, a $58 value. The performances take place at the stunning Uihlein Hall on Friday, November 19, at 8 p.m. and Saturday, November 20, at 8 p.m.
Conducted by maestro Edo de Waart, the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra strives to attain sonic expressions of the human spirit. Within the walls of the elegant, 2305-seat Uihlein Hall, their talented cast of musicians is pleased to perform Bartók’s stunning five-movement Concerto for Orchestra. For additional aural pleasure, concertmaster Frank Almond will also lend his hand to Samuel Barber's Violin Concerto on his emotionally expansive violin, proving once and for all that doves don't cry and that violins do have pre-frontal cortexes.
Since 1959, the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra has remained one of the country’s premiere orchestras. Currently, the instrument-laden gang boasts 88 full-time professionals, all calmly prepared to spread the imitable aesthetics of classical music.
The Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel offers this rave review of a recent performance by the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra:
- Power, raw emotion, softly blurred colors and ringing brass were all part of a Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra program that left the audience standing, whistling and cheering Friday evening...Dividing into antiphonal sections, the players formed tight, clean ensembles for a colorful, musical, completely engaging performance. – Elaine Schmidt
