If you're like me, variety is a good thing. And, that's especially true when it comes to the type of music I enjoy.
But, if it's part of a live performance, it's even better. I've discovered that I am able to appreciate the remarkable skill and dedication that comes from seeing and hearing these musicians in person.
The first performance will begin at 7:30 p.m. Friday. The encore presentation will be at 3 p.m. Sunday and both will be held at the Avon Middle School North Auditorium.
The Chorus will make its debut on Nov. 6 and 8 and together with the Symphony Orchestra will perform as part of a concert featuring the works of Haydn, Mozart and Schubert entitled the Music of Old Vienna.
All told, this year's season includes six different performances with typically a Friday night and Sunday afternoon option for each performance beginning this weekend through May 1 of next year.
These are performances that should be appreciated, considering much of the music features the timeless work of world-renowned composers, performed by talented people from right here in the local community.
Tickets for adults are $12 in advance and $15 at the door. Students are $5 in advance and $7 at the door. Tickets are $12 for those 65 and older. For added convenience, it's just 50 cents more per ticket for online orders.
They also offer a nice selection of affordable season ticket packages for individuals and families including a "Bring a Friend" option that includes two gift certificates good for any concert with the purchase of each 2015-2016 adults season ticket. Click here to order tickets online.
