10 Reasons Why The Acadiana Symphony ROCKS, And You Need To Go!
TOP 10 REASONS WHY THE SYMPHONY ROCKS AND YOU NEED TO GO!
There are preconceived notions about almost everything in life: when you go to get a shot, you think it will hurt when, in actuality, it doesn't always. When you have to go to your mother-in-law's house you think you'll be berated for some reason when, in reality, sometimes you aren't. When you have to go to the DMV you think that you will have to wait in line for a long time when, in reality - well, okay, maybe this one is right, but you get my point: sometimes things aren't as we expect.
With that being said, I always thought that going to a symphony would be boring. I just knew that I wouldn't enjoy that "hoity-toity" music when, in reality, I did!
The Acadiana Symphony has come up with 10 reasons you should go to the symphony, and I thought I'd share them with you.
You could take someone else's assumptions as Gospel when, in reality, the symphony ROCKS!! Get on board. Get a ticket.
James Bond will have nothin on you, and you don’t even have to say anything! Just sit back, enjoy the music, and head out for dinner after to talk about how wonderful it was! The perfect night out!
Classical Music is not only food for your soul, it has been scientifically proven as a great workout for the brain! It stimulates brain functions and helps to release the “feel good” hormone dopamine (that’s dope)!
The symphony hires local musicians as often as possible, such as Troy Breaux and Emma Guidry.
They won’t be your typical, “look I’m at the gym” or “bored at work” posts, it will be more of a “look how cool I am, you know you want to be here too” kinda thing.
As if! Our “Pick 3” concert package comes out to about $42 per ticket, which is about the same as a trip to the movies, all the while you are supporting local musicians, school programs, and a local organization dedicated to keeping Acadiana filled with music! So head to the symphony and check out that movie when it hits Netflix.
You love your man no matter what, tshirt, jeans, flip flops, but let’s face it: when he gets a little dressed up and you smell that cologne, (insert heart-eyes emoji here) va va va voooooom!! And you can totally end the night at your favorite hole in the wall, just to impress those people too.
With your ID, head to the box office the night of the performance and you can purchase up to 6 tickets for $10 EACH!
Long? Nah. The average concert is about 90 minutes, which leave you plenty of time to head out for an after-party to keep the evening going! Boring? Well as my Grandma always said: “Bored people are boring people”! So, here's an idea: don’t be boring. Enjoy the music!
Not only will you enjoy the music, but you will enjoy everyone in the audience enjoying the music! Closing their eyes, waving their fingers, bobbing their heads - great for people watching. To top that, in between each piece is that moment when all the people who have been holding a cough, sneeze or throat-clearing sound off: “COUGH! COUGH! HACK! HACK! BRAAHHH! HORK! HORKHORKHORK!” and then the music starts again and everyone falls silent. Very entertaining. I’m sure there is “Symphony Bingo” out there somewhere!
Some people fall asleep during a massage, I’ve even heard of people falling asleep at the dentist (just make sure you go with someone who has your back, you know, the friend who will wake you up if you start snoring AFTER they snap you doing it). But the music will lull you, quite possibly to a few zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz’s.
Again: Get on board. Get a ticket. THE SYMPHONY ROCKS!!
