While Boston is steeped in history, everyday Bostonians spend most of their time at the trendy new spots and leave the historically significant locales to the tourists. And while Faneuil Hall on a hot and crowded summer’s day may be one to avoid, there are many true Boston experiences that we are only short changing ourselves on if we skip over them. Case in point: The famed Oak Room and Symphony Hall. You truly would be remiss to miss out on either experience, especially during the cozy winter months. And, lucky for you, they have teams up to create a package night out ideal for impressing a date or rekindling a longtime romance.
Take advantage of this one night dinner-concert package on Tuesday, January 18, 2011. Begin your night promptly at 5:30 PM with a specially prepared Prix-Fix menu inside magnificently appointed Oak Room at the Fairmount Copley Plaza. Dining options include the storied Lobster Bisque (a hard one to resist), a flat iron steak and Vermont Crème Fraiche Cheesecake with vanilla roasted pineapple and rum-ginger syrup. The package pricing also includes a glass of wine.
Post dinner, find your way to Symphony Hall (transportation not included) to witness an evening of music from Debussy, Delius, Strauss and Mozart led by English conductor Sir Mark Elder. Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 21 will be the featured performance of the night, as played by German pianist Lars Vogt.
Even if you are not a classical music aficionado, hearing live music at Symphony Hall is a truly awe inspiring experience and one that every Bostonian should take in at least once in their lifetime. The acoustics and elegant setting of Symphony hall can turn an ordinary Tuesday evening into something a bit more extraordinary and one full of fond and pleasant memories.
Tickets are $90 per person and can be purchased here or by calling Symphony Charge at 888-266-1200. Indulge in a truly spectacular night that has been right at your fingertips all this time.
