The Shaghoian Hall, with its acclaimed acoustics and intimate setting, is a wonderful place to hear choral works. That’s one reason why people are so excited to hear the towering Mozart Requiem this weekend featuring the Fresno Philharmonic and the Fresno Community Chorus. There are performances Friday, Saturday and Sunday, but you have to remember that the Shaghoian is about a third the size of the Saroyan Theatre, where the orchestra usually plays. Saturday and Sunday’s performances are nearly sold out, while I’m told that a few seats remain for Friday’s 8 p.m. show.
Which is why it’s so fun to be able to give away a whopping 10 tickets to Friday’s performance. I’ll give a pair of tickets each to FIVE lucky Beehive readers. To enter the giveaway, leave a comment on this post telling us your favorite choral work with orchestra. (If you don’t have one — no problem. Just tell us why you’d like to see this concert. I’ll five comment at random. The winners each will receive four 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 between 4 and 5 p.m. that day, because that’s how I’ll inform winners. Complete rules are after the jump.
