Founded by a local ladies’ group more than 110 years ago, Civic Morning Musicals curates chamber recitals, symphony concerts, operas, and other classical-music performances by homegrown artists and international superstars. Today’s deal ushers buyers to Live! At The Everson concerts, which highlight classical masterpieces and up-and-coming performers. Instead of leaving a tear-stained Pop-Tart on Franz Liszt’s grave, guests can toast the composer’s life on September 25, when pianist Michael Fennelly and soprano Sharon I-Chun Cheng—recent winner of the Liszt Competition—perform his Piano Sonata in B minor. On October 30, Forty Fingers—Two Pianos will thrill audiences with four-, six-, and eight-hand music composed for human keyboardists or precocious grandfather clocks, and the premiere of a new project by Talking Heads frontman David Byrne titillates cochleae on March 4. Other concerts will explore contemporary duos, Rachmaninov’s early works, and the oboe’s power to charm unmarried cobras. Groupon holders also score a no-commitment membership to Civic Morning Musicals, which includes a free newsletter and discounts on upcoming recitals.
