Win tickets to Saturday’s Fresno Philharmonic pops concert


You gotta love it, Baby. With the Fresno Philharmonic’s “The Rat Pack: A Symphonic Celebration” pops concert, you’ll get the chance to hang out with Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis, Jr. (Or at least some very fine Broadway veterans paying tribute to them.) The orchestra is augmenting its roster with some of the best local jazz players around. It should be a lively evening.

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 in row “L.”

To enter the giveaway, leave a comment on this post answering this question: If you could hang out with Frank, Dean or Sammy, which one would it be, and what question would you ask him? 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 4 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.

Only readers who submit a comment on this post are eligible. Winners will be picked at random. Recipients will be notified by e-mail at the end of each giveaway period. No substitutions or transfer of winners/prizes. Prizes are not redeemable for cash. Some prizes may have due dates for redemption/use.

Win! Win!

Marc says:

I would have to hang out with Frank, and my question would be inquiring which movie was his favorite to film!

Crista Newman says:

If I could hang out with Frank, I’d ask him if he could record a remix of My Kind of Town (Fresno is).

Heather says:

I’d ask Frank what he was thinking when he married much-younger Mia Farrow. Then I’d ask him to sing “One For My Baby (and One More for the Road).” Maybe in the reverse order.

Amy says:

I’d choose Sammy and ask him to sing “Candy Man” for me. I heard that song over and over when I was a little kid. It’s stuck in my brain.

Lea McAndrews says:

I am inspired to paint by listening to music.

Emily Adams says:

I’d like to ask Mr. Sinatra what HIS favorite song is. We all know what are our favorites, but I want to know his.

Michelle Perry says:

I would hang with Dean and ask him to mix up a drink for me…

Stephen Davis says:

I would want to hang out with Sammy Davis Jr. just so I could ask him what it was like being that famous as an African American mlae in that era, and how he fit in with the rest of the Rat Pack.

Kristin says:

I’d like to hang out with Dean. My question for him would be what is his favorite song & ask him to sing “That’s Amore”.

Harry Valencia says:

I would like to hang out with Dean Martin. I would ask him “Ain’t that a kick in the head?”
