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. Improve the odds of artistry with today's Groupon: for $15, you get one gold-level ticket to "Beauty and the Brahms" with the Conway Symphony Orchestra (a $30 value). The concert takes place at Reynolds Performance Hall on the University of Central Arkansas campus on Saturday, February 19 at 7:30 p.m.
Led by musical maestro Israel Getzov, the Conway Symphony Orchestra's "Beauty and the Brahms" concert will euphoniously paint a moving and picturesque likeness of nature by performing Brahm's Symphony no. 2. Hear violins, clarinets, and percussion take listeners through the pastoral images the masterful German composer saw in the Austrian Alps—snow-capped mountains, serene rivers, and a sunbathing Friedrich Nietzsche. The orchestra will interpret the opus for the 21st century in addition to displaying the expert chops of guest vocalist Cao Jin of East China Normal University, who'll perform arias by Mozart and Lehar. The orchestra's ability to weave multihued pictures through music brings a fresh perspective to storytelling, making this establishment a sought-after community center of entertainment.
