February 14, Meyerhoff Symphony Hall

Tchaikovsky is known for creating some of the most romantic scores, from “The Nutcracker” to “Sleeping Beauty.” Joshua Bell will bring these delicate pieces back to life with his violin. The perfect way to take a break from Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift is by rejuvenating yourself with classic culture. Considering how this concert is on Valentine’s Day, this will be a great alternative gift to give your loved one, besides the traditional chocolate and roses.

Carnage is known for his strong on-stage presence, so you will not be bored during his set.
