Today is Super Bowl Day.
Can you believe that tickets average $3,500?
Anyway, for Super Bowl 47 today in New Orleans — between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers — it seems like a lot of local music groups have learned the lessons of past years and not scheduled live concerts that conflict with the popular sports event.
Even if the Green Bay Packers aren’t playing in this year’s championship game –- which will start with a 5:30 p.m. CST kickoff on CBS tonight and can be watched on TV or streamed live on the CBS sports web site –- preventing or avoiding the loss of audiences to other events seems a wise choice.
So The Ear asks: Can you name a good classical piece that goes well with the Super Bowl?
Let me know in the COMMENT section, preferably with a link to a YouTube video.
I will appreciate it for this year – and I expect in future years, when maybe Green Bay will appear again.
