Live concerts are meticulously coordinated events, with dedicated staff ensuring each instrument is tuned, each mic is working, and each band member is set in the upright and locked position. Keep their hard work from going to waste with today’s GrouponLive deal to see “Heartbeats”, performed by A Far Cry chamber orchestra at New England Conservatory‘s Jordan Hall. For $24, you get two tickets for general-admission seating on February 24 at 8 p.m. (up to a $54 value, including all fees). Student tickets are regularly $7.

Founded in 2007, A Far Cry is a self-conducted chamber orchestra made up of 17 young professional pluckers and bow-wielders, known as the Criers, who have played alongside cellist Yo-Yo Ma and rock band This Will Destroy You within the last month. The New York Times proclaims that the orchestra “brims with personality” that yields “performances of such passionate involvement,” and the Boston Globe writes that "members of the conductor-less string orchestra love nothing more than to throw themselves into a musical phrase with vital conviction." The collective pushes the boundaries of orchestra repertoire, eschewing the tradition of smashing their instruments on a gong after each performance while favoring collaboration and rotating leadership. This particular program features Shostakovich’s dark Eighth Quartet, John Adams’s Shaker Loops, and the premiere of double concerto K2, with fiddler Kip Jones and bassist Karl Doty. Racking up more than 200 of those performances so far, the ensemble has also released three albums and is the chamber orchestra in residence at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, which often entails serving as live statues to fill in for artwork that’s being restored.

I had been "taking a break" from music for more than a year after an insane four years as a music major but your concert at Jordan Hall last month inspired me to return. Thank you!
