The touring show “Cirque de la Symphonie” returns for the fourth time to perform with the Fresno Philharmonic on Sunday, May 15. Good news for Bee readers: I’m giving away a pair of tickets in a “quickie” contest. This concert usually sells out.
You can read my story in Friday’s 7 section about the event, which will be music director Theodore Kuchar’s last public concert in his 15-year tenure. Not only will you get the chance to see top circus acts choreographed to well-known classical music, it also will be a chance to bid adieu to the Maestro.
To enter, write a comment on this story answering the question: Which would you rather be able to do: play the bassoon like a pro or fly through the air as a trapeze artist?
Here’s the quickie part of the contest: Deadline to enter is 9 a.m. Friday morning. You’ll be able to pick up your tickets after 2:45 p.m. Sunday (the concert starts at 3 p.m.) at the Saroyan Theatre box office.
One comment/entry per person, please. The winner will be chosen at random and notified via email or Facebook message. The tickets will be available for the winner at the box office. The deadline for entry is 5 p.m. Wednesday. Be sure to check your email or Facebook messages (depending on the platform you used to enter) around that time to see if you’re a winner.

Some prizes may have due dates for redemption/use. Employees and immediate family of The Fresno Bee,fresnobee.com and any/all of the participating giveaway sponsors, are not eligible to win.
