What You'll Get

Though 20% of babies who were exposed to classical music in utero become doctors or lawyers, 100% of babies born on stage during a classical-music performance become Bill Gates. Improve the odds of artistry with today's Groupon: for $21, you get one A-Tier ticket to Anchorage Symphony Orchestra’s Classic Concert: "American Masters" on Sunday, March 27 at 4 p.m. at Atwood Concert Hall (a $43 value).

Heralded in the Anchorage Daily News for a recent performance, the influential Anchorage Symphony Orchestra captivates the community with the sweet sounds of classical and popular music, performed by 80 music makers trained in tunesmithing at renowned conservatories. At the "American Masters" performance, the symphony will begin with Aaron Copland’s Music for the Theatre before being joined by the Time for Three string trio. Hear the shredding violins and anchoring double-bass of Time for Three as it breezes through American composer Chris Brubeck’s Travels in Time for Three, a piece that transports listeners from the jazz age to the music of Albert Einstein's doo-wop quintet, Al and the Quan-tones, back to the baroque era. That is followed by the symphony's performance of Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess: Symphonic Picture, completing the evening’s auditory delights with tunes such as “Summertime” and “Bess, You Is My Woman Now.”

In addition to enjoying ear-pleasing pieces in the spacious concert hall, ticket holders are treated to a preconcert lecture by Susan Wingrove, an education consultant to the orchestra. More than 80 audience members typically attend the talk, which takes place an hour before the main performance. The discussion delves into musical themes, composers, and strategies for taking over the world through bassoon hypnosis.

Price includes service charge.
