Join me for my 21st birthday which is actually on March 18th but I'd rather celebrate on Saturday. Usually I do a birthday hike, but due to health issues, this year that idea is out. Hoping to be able to do short walks soon. Anyhow, I have tickets to the Symphony and like to have you join me.
First we will do dinner at Washington Platform, a historic restaurant located at Elm and Court. They are known for the seafood but have a wonderful array of dishes for all tastes, including vegan. They also offer a full bar as well. Here is a menu:
At 715ish, we will head over to Music Hall for the concert. You MUST order your tickets online using the Promo code Susan for 2 free tickets. I cannot guarantee seats if they sell out or discontinue the promo so please book early. My tickets are in Orchestra 1 in a back row, but I'm not sure if there are still seats left. It would be best to get two tickets and bring a friend or find a group member to get tickets with so you have someone to sit with as I cannot guarantee seating. It is free tickets so beggars can't be choosy.
Here is a description of the concert:
Musical worlds merge when Louis Langrée and the CSO embark on a groundbreaking artistic collaboration with Cincinnati’s premier new music festival, MusicNOW, and Artistic Director Bryce Dessner. With unique programs on Friday and Saturday evenings, explore heart-pounding music of pure intensity, gorgeous melodies and sheer genius. The festival features the solo electric guitar talents of Bryce and Aaron Dessner of the acclaimed rock band, The National, performing Bryce’s St. Carolyn by the Sea, and global premieres by the world’s hottest composers, Nico Muhly and Pulitzer Prize-winner David Lang. This concert weekend also features the second appearance this season of the Grammy-winning sextet and ensemble-in-residence, eighth blackbird, Penderecki’s riveting Polymorphia, and Radiohead guitarist and keyboardist Jonny Greenwood’s 48 Responses to his idol’s Polymorphia.
