About This Deal
A performance by a professional string quartet can be a welcome change of pace from being forced to listen to the neighbor practicing the trombone in the shower. Revel in professional production with today's Groupon: for $15, you get two general-admission auditorium-seating tickets to the Boston String Quartet concert at Finneytown High School on Tuesday, April 26, at 7:30 p.m. (a $30 value).
Over seven years, the Boston String Quartet has vibrated strings in collaboration with artists such as John Mayer and the Boston Ballet, stirred the air molecules at Symphony Hall and PBS, and performed by invitation for former President George H.W. Bush. With this deal, eighth-note connoisseurs can wrap their eardrums around the quartet's dulcet tones as they present "Xibus," an evening of contemporary and classical that marks the zenith of a two-day workshop collaborating with Finneytown High School orchestra students. Over the course of the evening program, the quartet and the students will cajole their chordophones into ringing out in harmonious arrangements of music by Carlos Santana, the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, and Bill Gates's new Viking-punk band, as well as performing original compositions by members of Boston String Quartet.
