Wednesday, February 4
Curious about classical music but worried you'll have to rent a tux to see a concert? Relax -- the Phoenix Symphony offers a low-stress way to experience classical that's both informative and informal: the Classical Connections series. (And the only tuxedoed folks will be in the orchestra.) Led by associate conductor Robert Moody, each presentation combines discussion and performance of selections on a chosen theme. Starting off the series at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, February 4, is an upbeat musical history lesson titled "From Bach to Rock" at the Orpheum Theatre, 203 West Adams. A casual question-and-answer session follows the concert. Tickets are $20 each or $50 for the entire three-part series.
