Classical music boosts listeners' brain functions and energy levels, which is why every child should ingest a well-rounded harpsichord each morning. Treat your noggin to a mellifluous meal with today's GrouponLive deal: for $50, you get two section A tickets to see the Boca Raton Symphonia at The Roberts Theatre at St. Andrew's School on Saturday, January 14, at 8 p.m. (a $100 value).
The Boca Raton Symphonia infuses South Florida's arts and culture community with spirited classical-music performances, escorting listeners through the works of some of history's most revered composers. As the first installment of a two-part mini series, the January 14 concert spotlights guest conductor Arthur Fagen alongside piano soloist Alex Cobrin, who employs masterful keystrokes to caress open ears like a grizzled groundskeeper caresses his glass eyeball during a time of quiet reflection. Throughout the program, the ensemble's vacillating scales will reverberate during the premiere of Turkin's Five Brief Essays on One Theme before shifting to a pair of fiery pieces, including Beethoven's Piano Concerto no. 4 and Mendelssohn's Symphony no. 3. From seats in section A, attendees enjoy up-close views of the stage while basking in tightly spun measures or the company of their mannequin dates.
