A nod to Ol' Blue Eyes

Do New Year's your way -- or, rather, Sinatra's way Friday night. There are still tickets left to the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra's "Tribute to Ol' Blue Eyes," featuring Steve Lippia. Expect to hear hits from Come Fly With Me to Strangers in the Night and My Kind of Town. FWSO music director Miguel Harth-Bedoya conducts. We'll bet you can even start your New Year's celebrating early with some champagne at the Bass Hall lobby bar.

8 p.m. Friday. Bass Hall, Fort Worth. $29-$80. 817-665-6000; www.fwsymphony.org

European-style

New Year's celebration

If you can't get to Europe for New Year's Eve, no worries; you can enjoy a European-flavored celebration in Dallas. The Dallas Symphony Orchestra, under the baton of Austrian guest conductor Friedrich Haider, will perform a concert of delightful waltzes, overtures and more. Still without dinner plans? Purchase a package that includes dinner at Opus Restaurant (inside the Meyerson) before the concert, and champagne at intermission. A dinner ticket is $37, plus the price of a concert ticket. The festivities will end by 10 p.m. For more information about making dinner reservations, check the website.

Concert is at 7:30 p.m. Friday. Meyerson Symphony Center, Dallas. $30-$90. 214-692-0203; www.dallassymphony.com
