A night at the symphony provides not only a lasting memory of professionally refined musical prowess, but also keeps patrons from reliving the boring routine of watching the TV boil. Musically mix up the routine with today's Groupon: for $42, you get a 2010–11 Masterworks Trio season package (a $98 value, including fees) at the Utah Symphony, which gets you one ticket to any three select upcoming Masterworks performances through May 28, 2011 (see sidebar for available shows and dates). Tickets will be for the best available seats in the third tier at Abravanel Hall. Reserve your tickets at the Abravanel Hall box office or at the Utah Symphony website.
Shakespearean scenesters can hear the Bard's plays translated into music with two performances—Romeo and Juliet in November, and A Midsummer Night's Dream in February, where the orchestra will be joined by the Utah Symphony Chorus. Immerse yourself in Beethoven's joyful Concerto no. 1 on piano in late October, or Debussy’s impressionistic La Mer in February, a lovely Valentine’s Day gift for anyone devoted to Debussy since his early acid-jazz hit, “Clair De Funk.” With several classical genres in the lineup and a collection of talented musical guests scheduled to perform, the Utah Symphony's Masterwork series should thrill both symphonic devotees and orchestral novices.
The architecturally impressive Abravanel Hall is worth the trip in and of itself, as its luscious acoustics allow symphony goers to pinpoint the oboe's staccato eighth-notes and the timpani's booming rolls. Surprise a date or impress your favorite ventriloquist dummy with a cultural experience for the ears with today's Groupon to the Utah Symphony.
Limit one ticket per show. Must select all three shows at the same time.
