Today's Groupon gently stuffs sweet-sounding wads of prototypical classical music in your ear canals and pours enthralling circus action directly into your pupils with an orchestra ticket to your choice of one of three shows from the Houston Symphony at The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. Each of the three performances has free mezzanine and lawn seating provided by area sponsors, but the first-come, first-served orchestra seats ($15 value) enhance your musical experience by putting you closer to the action.
Choose one of the following shows or buy multiple Groupons (up to four) to tune your heartstrings to each soulful note:
- On Friday, May 14, at 8 p.m., Forces of Nature offers listeners a chance to watch conductor Hans Graf harness the powers of wind, water, and earth to bring to life stunning compositions inspired by nature's grandeur from classical powerhouses Mozart and Beethoven.
*At Cirque de la Symphonie on Thursday, May 27, at 8 p.m., soaring aerial acts, strongmen, and an exotic hand-balancer display adroit maneuvers center stage while conductor Michael Krajewski leads the symphony in a stunning soundtrack that elevates each flip and feat to rhythmic perfection.
- Tag along on the European Adventure on Thursday, June 10, at 8 p.m., when conductor Robert Franz leads a merry musical romp for the whole family sans creepy hostel stays and misleading foreign phrase books.
All shows come to fruition at The Pavilion, an outdoor amphitheater with a well-manicured lawn surrounded by lush forests, affording you a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to search for the elusive beast known as Kibblesmith. After Hurricane Ike in 2008, The Pavilion was renovated and expanded to include thousands of new seats and a larger canopy structure that makes Houston Symphony’s perfectly punctuated staccatos, fine fortississimos, and notes sound superb.
