Almost anything can be improved with music, as evidenced by tuba-accompanied balcony serenades, operatic State of the Union addresses, and yodeled bank statements. Tune your ears to the sweet sounds on stage with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get two tickets to the Amelia Island Chamber Music Festival’s June 8 performance by eighth blackbird at 7:30 p.m. at the Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Fernandina Beach (a $60 value).
Amelia Island Chamber Music Festival is celebrating a decade of musical performances with a season of world-class concerts such as the June 8 show featuring the Grammy-award-winning sextet eighth blackbird. Attendees may pick up their two general-admission tickets at will-call before settling into their seats to take in a performance more mellifluous and theatrical than a troupe of circus cats harmonizing in the shower. Marvel at displays of mental and physical dexterity as eighth blackbird’s members harmonize through six pieces, often playing from memory on flute, clarinet, viola, cello, and piano. The Amelia Island Chamber Music Festival will continue through June 19, with a full schedule of similarly inspiring and enjoyable performances, including chamber ensembles, tango and flamenco, American roots music, and jazz.
On the morning of June 8, eighth blackbird will perform a free show at 11 a.m. at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, but this Groupon is still the best deal for the 7:30 p.m. show.
