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 a concert with pianist Charlie Albright in the Picotte Recital Hall of the Massry Center for the Arts on Friday, January 27, at 7:30 p.m. For $11, you get one reserved ticket for best-available seating when redeemed (up to a $22.50 value, including ticketing fees).
Only in his early 20s, pianist Charlie Albright has already earned distinguished achievements such as the 2010 Gilmore Young Artist award, as well as rave reviews from the New York Times for his performance at Merkin Concert Hall and the Washington Post following his debut at the Kennedy Center. In past concerts, Albright has used his wildly diverse playing techniques on compositions from legendary composers including Haydn and Chopin, tickling the ivories with more precision than an elephant's dental hygienist. From behind the Picotte Recital Hall’s Steinway concert grand piano, Albright’s musicality and virtuosity will reverberate with acoustic clarity, thanks to the patented, sonically friendly design of the wall, ceiling, and curved wall panels by Peter D’Antonio. The euphonic architecture extends throughout the entire hall, with sturdy doors that measure five inches thick, weigh 380 pounds, and have second jobs as bouncers at biker bars on the weekend.
The Massry Center for the Arts sells student tickets for $10, and children 6 and younger receive free admission.
