Classical musicians were the rock stars of their day, much like the rock stars of today are the notaries public of tomorrow. Stamp your senses with the finely crafted tunes of today’s GrouponLive deal: for $12, you get two general-admission tickets to "Encore Georgetown!", presented by the Austin Civic Orchestra at Southwestern University’s Alma Thomas Theater in Georgetown on Saturday, February 4, at 7:30 p.m. (up to a $24 value).

During the Austin Civic Orchestra’s "Encore Georgetown!" concert, volunteer musicians and accomplished guest tunesmiths unite to pollinate the air with performances of classical and modern works by such noteworthy composers as Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, Eric Ewazen, and Ludwig van Beethoven. The melodious orchestra inaugurates the evening with a soaring rendition of Rimsky-Korsakov's symphonic standard Capriccio Espagnol, sating the appetites of famished ears with a veritable feast of notes and muffling the gobbles of any turkeys in attendance. Thomas Burritt, a percussion professor from the University of Texas, mans the mallets during Ewazen's Concerto for Marimba, which highlights the instrument's unique timbre. King Lear Variations, a piece written by contemporary composer David Amram, leads the orchestra with bassoon-driven melodies and a rousing cowbell solo by Shakespeare's ghost before the theater rumbles with the thunderous bravado of Beethoven's Symphony no. 7.

Though the Austin Civic Orchestra offers discounts for children and Southwestern University students, faculty, and staff, today's Groupon offers the best deal available for most customers.
