Like cheese, classical music is best enjoyed when in string form. Snack on the sounds of cultured compositions with today's Groupon: for $19, you get one admission for preferred seating in section B to one show during the Colorado Music Festival, held in the historic Chatauqua Auditorium in Boulder (up to a $42 value). The festival runs June 25–August 5 at 7:30 p.m. View the festival calendar here.

In its 35th season, the Colorado Music Festival graces ears with strums, plucks, and beats of a panoply of talented composers, soloists, and ensembles in 24 shows. Led by baton-wielding maestro Michael Christie, the festival’s chamber orchestra heralds the event’s opening with a performance of Marcel Tyberg’s completion of Schubert’s Unfinished Symphony no. 8, which he left partially unwritten when he ran out of room on a diner napkin. The auditorium resounds with world music from eclectic performers, such as Apollo’s Fire, a dynamic quartet that weaves fiddle, guitar, wooden flutes, and hammered dulcimer into a musical tapestry of 17th- and 18th-century America, the Irish sounds of Eileen Ivers, or the jazz-infused improvisation of Time for Three. Multimedia performances include a melodic homage to Ansel Adams with original orchestration underscoring more than one hundred images from his creative canon. Celebrate violins and musical yo-yos with a string-studded mini-festival of concertos by Vivaldi, Tchaikovsky, and Sibelius from July 10 through July 17. Festival attendees may indulge their other senses with a pre-concert picnic in the Chatauqua’s park prior to the performance or during Talks Under the Tent on Sundays and Thursdays at 6:30, which give fans an opportunity to meet, greet, and play hacky-sack with visiting artists.
