Ride the bus to a concert
- Published: September 26, 2014
Beginning this Saturday, villagers have an opportunity to take a relaxed and social journey to a classical music concert. Organized by Jeff Huntington, buses will travel to Dayton on Friday evenings for six concerts with the Dayton Philharmonic and to Springfield on Saturday nights for the Springfield Symphony.
The first concert in the Dayton series will take place tonight, Sept. 26, with the program, “From Russia with Love,” featuring violinist Chad Hoopes. Next week, the bus travels to Springfield on Saturday, Oct. 4 for an evening of American music with works by Gershwin, Copland and Bernstein, featuring pianist Awadagin Pratt. The programs continue through the year.
Buses leave the Yellow Springs High School parking lot at 7 p.m. for both concerts and will return around 11 p.m. Those who attend Springfield concerts will get discounted tickets of $95 for both the series tickets and bus fare. Dayton concert-goers can purchase good seats for the series at $145, including bus fare, $110 for fair seats, including bus fare, or buy the ticket at the door and pay $6 for bus expenses.
