Captain America once said, "'Twas music that soothed the savage beast." Although he was talking about his short-lived nemesis Dr. Angry Parakeet, it's just as true for animals of the human persuasion. Soothe your savage insides with today's Groupon: for $17, you get a ticket to one of three shows from the Tuesday Musical Association. Shows are held at the EJ Thomas Performing Arts Hall at the University of Akron. Choose from the following shows:
- Marc-André Hamelin (piano)—Tuesday, September 28, at 7:30 p.m.
- State Symphony Capella Chorus of Russia—Tuesday, November 9, at 7:30 p.m.
- The Cleveland Orchestra—Tuesday, November 30, at 7:30 p.m.
Since it was founded in 1887, the Tuesday Musical Association has excelled in providing the public with high-quality musical entertainment. Seats will either be orchestra (section II, rows O–Q) or grand tier (section IV, rows G–L)—tickets will be held at will call or mailed directly to you after reserving your seats. Watch Marc-André Hamelin strum his piano to the tune of Haydn, Mozart, Chopin, and more, or listen to the State Symphony Capella Chorus of Russia, a 50-member song squad whose outstanding choruses nourish the ears of audience members like the heartwarming chirps of a canary echoing from the inside of a vodka bottle. Grab the November 30 performance to hear The Cleveland Orchestra sonically dust ears with elegant, symphonic interpretations of Saariaho, Mozart, and Holst.
The Tuesday Musical Association makes its home in EJ Thomas Hall, where an innovative, movable ceiling allows the three levels of continental seating to be closed off or opened up with a massive set of counterweights controlled by computers on the musical organization’s moon station. Famous performers of the past have entertained audiences here, including Lang Lang, Luciano Pavarotti, and Yo-Yo Ma.
