The Acadiana Symphony Orchestra is presenting two intimate, back-to-back concerts on Valentine’s Day with guest artist Scott Mulvahill.

Executive Director, Dana Baker said that the organization's Valentine's Day event has been gaining popularity over the years.

ASO’s Valentine’s Day concert has become an increasingly popular holiday pastime in Acadiana, because it offers something for families, friends, and love birds alike, to all enjoy. - Dana Baker, Executive Director, Acadiana Symphony Orchestra

Baker goes on to say how delighted the Symphony is to be adding Mulvahill's talents to the evening.

This year, we’re delighted to add Scott’s tremendous artistic talent to the mix, to bring the audience an intimate evening of entertaining music.

When we spoke to Baker we could tell that there was more she wanted to share with us. When we pressed, she said, "I could tell you, but it'd be better to show you."

That's when she broke out the box and opened it up:

It is a necklace from Paul's Jewelry, and one lucky concert will be going home with it around their neck.

Guests should also be on the lookout for other giveaways that evening, including roses from Flowers and More by Dean, a gift card to Social, chocolates from Lolli's Chocolates, and a bottle of bubbly.
