Staff Picks: Rachel Campbell
by Kathleen Sykes
Not sure what symphony performance you want to see next? Take a look at what shows our staff—the people who live and die by classical music—would recommend for you! You’ll even get an idea of how to make a night of going to the symphony. This week we’re featuring Rachel Campbell’s picks for the upcoming months. She has a passion for all things Broadway, and loves our entertainment series.
What do you do?
I’m Rachel Campbell, the Patron Loyalty Marketing Manager. I’m in charge of building relationships with our patrons and sending them emails and communication of upcoming shows that might interest them.
Which performance are you most looking forward to and why?
I’m so excited for Dancing & Romancing! I grew up watching all the classic dance movies with my mom and grandma. The dance scenes were always epic… the guy and girl were always in the best costumes, the music started up and there was no need for talking because the music and the dancing said it all. So, of course, my date to the show will be my mom because she introduced me to all the classics like Funny Face, Singin’ in the Rain and An American in Paris.
This is part of our Entertainment Series (to which you can buy a subscription here) which is great for anyone who loves Broadway musicals! We’ve had a lot of fun concerts this year like Broadway Divas, and we have some others coming up like A Broadway Christmas with Brian Stokes Mitchell.
What do you recommend doing before or after the show?
I love to go to dinner before the show, that way I can catch up with the person I’m going with. There are so many restaurants in the downtown area, I like to try a new one each week. But my go-to favorite restaurant to go to is Sawadee or Blue Lemon if I’m short on time. After we’ve filled up, all I have to do sit back and enjoy the show!
