The Saenger Theatre
Join the Mobile Symphony Orchestra (MSO) on a whirlwind flight around the world enjoying masterworks from Russia, France, Austria and the U.S., March 27 & 28 at Mobile’s historic Saenger Theatre. To allow for social-distancing the orchestra offers four performances – 6:00 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. on Saturdays and 1:00 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. on Sundays.
Music Around the World features harpist Katie Ott in Debussy’s dreamy Danses sacrée et profane, Rimsky-Korsakov’s super-famous Flight of the Bumblebee, Mahler’s Adagietto from Symphony No. 5 and Copland’s most beloved masterpiece, Appalachian Spring.
The concert is sponsored by The Shirk Family Foundation and Andra Bohnet.
Following current guidelines, the orchestra can allow only 400 people in the 1,900-seat Saenger. Seats and rows will be blocked to accommodate social distancing. Masks are required throughout the performance. Concerts are limited to approximately one hour without an intermission. The Saenger will be sanitized between performances.
Three-concert memberships are available for $45-$171. Tickets to individual in-person performances are $15-$82. MSO is offering a discounted $99 membership for new members in the yellow price zone for the remaining three concerts. Individual tickets in this area are usually $64 each. Tickets can be purchased online, by phone at 251-432-2010 or at the symphony box office, 257 Dauphin Street. Student tickets are $10. Through the MSO Big Red Ticket program sponsored by the Alabama Power Foundation, students in grades K-12 can attend the Sunday performance free when accompanied by a paying adult.
