This is a past event.

Battle of the Batons 

When: Sat., Feb. 5, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $12-$18

To all six people who've ever wondered how classical music might sound if the conductor was totally hammered: Have we got an event for you. Tonight brings the Battle of the Batons, wherein nine well-known locals will take turns conducting the Colorado Springs Philharmonic. The competition, such as it is, promises to be a knock-down, drag-out affair between people like business leader Phil Lane, news anchor Lisa Lyden and young actress Mallory Hybl. Catch their "barely rehearsed orchestral tours de force" at 8 at the Pikes Peak Center (190 S. Cascade Ave.) for $12 to $18. Bring earplugs if you must, but also a critical eye — your judging will help determine a winner. — Kirk Woundy
