Maybe you’re looking for something a little more high-brow this evening. No, playing cider pong instead of beer pong doesn’t count. Instead, you should get yourself to the Knox County Symphony’s annual winter concert, taking place tonight at 8:00 p.m. in Rosse Hall. See, it’s conveniently located right on campus.
The concert will feature the winners of the Young Musicians Competition for 2012. The opening piece, according to a recent student-info, will be Piotr Tchaikovsky’s “Romeo and Juliet Fantasy – Overture,” which tells the story of Shakespeare’s most unnecessarily angsty play, and the concert will end with the Mars and Jupiter excerpts of “The Planets” by Gustav Holst (which is a piece that really does make classical music seem cool).
General admission is $10.00, senior citizens $7.00 and student tickets go for $5.00. If you know someone in the Symphony, however, you can probably try to snag a free ticket.
