My true love gave to me, tickets to Romeo and Juliet with the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra.
I finally went to see my first Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra show on Saturday night. Home for the Holidays was part concert, part sing-a-long, and most importantly, part a musical rendition of one of my all time picture books, The Hockey Sweater by Roch Carrier. Carrier joined the HPO onstage to perform HPO Composer-in-Residence Abigail Richardson-Schulte's musical version of the Canadian classic. I even got to meet Roch after the show, which was a huge highlight.
On February 21, the HPO is bringing another literary classic to the stage, Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Tickets to the performance is the perfect gift if you have last-minute shopping to do, but like me, don't want to leave the house!
The Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra makes me feel way younger than I am by offering $17 youth tickets for anyone under the age of 35. Check out their HPO GO program.
