While 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. Make up for lost tunes with today's Groupon: for $12, you get one ticket to the Trio Cavatina concert (a $25 value), presented by Chamber Music Tulsa on Sunday, February 13 at 3 p.m. After being named winners of the 2009 Naumburg Chamber Music Competition and warming eardrums at Carnegie Hall in 2010, Trio Cavatina will blend violin, cello, and piano into a melodic stew on the John H. Williams Theatre at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center. Amateur noise enthusiasts and professional Weird Al Yankovics—known as Serious Al Yankovics—will fall into a blissful aural haze as the trio's various string boxes produce intense pieces by Torres, Thomas, and Mendelssohn. The trio plays by the rules of traditional chamber music but attacks each composition with a modern sense of intensity and passion, a concept only previously known to founding fathers committing enthusiastic mail fraud.
Chamber Music Tulsa offers $5 student tickets for a single performance.
