Ravishing Rachmaninoff - DSO - friday morning!

Take a day off from work, it's valentine's day!

This is a very romantic program, and the concert begins at 10:45. I'll arrive at 10:15 Also! If people are feeling up to it, we can head to the traffic jam & snug later for some lunch and conversation. This looks to be an amazing program. The Fountains of Rome is an absolutely beautiful piece. I played the celeste in this piece when my College Orchestra performed it.


Here's the program

GERSHWIN Cuban Overture
RACHMANINOFF Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini
RESPIGHI The Fountains of Rome
PIAZZOLLA Sinfonia de Buenos Aires

    I plan on arriving at least a half hour before the concert. We can car pool if you like, just let me know by replying to this comment, I will be leaving early. The concert doesn't look to be sold out, so I'm just gonna buy tickets when I get there, probably the cheapest at $15, the acoustics are wonderful, so you hear the full sound whether your on the main floor, on the last row balcony.

    If you don't care where you're sitting, then you can go for as little $15. If you want to sit up close near the stage, or at the very front of the balcony, then it'll cost $50. You can buy tickets online here. There's plenty of balcony seats left, main floor doesn't have nearly as many options, I'm willing to bet most of those are season ticket holders.

      Can we get a group rate? Can you do RUSH for a morning performance?? Also, is the full orchestra playing that morning? Thanks so much!!!

      I don't know of any discounts, but I'm sure we could carpool if that'll help. It will be the full orchestra, and it doesn't look to be sold out, so I'm gonna buy tickets when I get there.

    In my opinion both the sound & sightlines are great from the mid balcony and the price is reasonable.

      $25 I think. I paid a bit less at season ticket rates.

      There are also tickets at the rear of the main floor. Is the mid-balcony better for acoustics & sight-line?

    The Respighi Fountains of Rome is one of my all-time favorites!! I heard the DSO at Meadowbrook performing this when I was a young college student.
    So is this the full orchestra, or just a partial group of musicians?
    Do you have the CODE to order tickets that are
    reduced? Are you going to Group Rate tickets???
    Where are you going to sit?
    The $15 balcony sounds a little too high up in the nose-bleed section.
    Any ideas for reduced rates????
    Thanks again,
    Paula
