Win tickets to the Fresno Philharmonic

UPDATE: Congratulations to winners Sally Rivera, David Thammavongsa, Kelly Manley and Kelly Lee.

ORIGINAL POST: If you’re a Beethoven fan, it doesn’t get any better than this. The Fresno Philharmonic’s upcoming concerts Saturday and Sunday at the Saroyan Theatre feature a triple dose of good ol’ Ludwig Van. Guest soloist is the acclaimed Elena Urioste, who just finished an engagement this past weekend with the Philadelphia Orchestra. She’ll play the Beethoven Violin Concerto. Also on the program: Beethoven’s Coriolan Overture and the famed Symphony No. 3 “Eroica.”

Here’s the best part for Beehive readers: I have FOUR pairs of tickets to give away to Saturday’s 8 p.m. performance. These are very nice orchestra seats, rows “O” and “P.”

To enter the giveaway, leave a comment on this post telling us your favorite memory of a classical-music concert. (If you’ve never been to one, you can tell us that, too.) I’ll pick four comments at random. Each winner will receive two tickets. No repeat entries, please. These are paper tickets, so you’ll need to come down to The Bee’s front lobby by 5 p.m. Friday to pick them up. Deadline to enter is 1 p.m. Wednesday. Be sure to check your email Wednesday afternoon or evening, because that’s how I’ll inform winners. Complete rules are on the jump.

Carmina Burana

I have never been to a classical concert but I would LOVE to!!!

Kendra says:

As a local musician it brings me joy to attend classical concerts in Fresno. To be able to hear my colleagues perform for a large audience and to share their talents is an amazing experience. My favorite would be a toss up between Carmina Burana or the Romeo and Juliet concert that the Philharmonic held a couple years back. It would be wonderful to be able to attend the Beethoven concert, since Beethoven is one of my most favorite composers. I enjoy playing his music on the piano.

My kid sister loves instrumentals. I love Mozart, this would be an amazing time to encourage more love of music, and performance for the both of us. Not to mention “sissy time”!
