What You'll Get


Music soothes the savage beast, housebreaks it, and teaches it to sight-read and sing operettas for the entertainment of houseguests. Calm your inner chupacabra with today's GrouponLive deal: for $37, you get one ticket to the 22nd season opening night of the Chicago Philharmonic at Pick-Staiger Hall on the Northwestern University campus in Evanston on Sunday, October 2, at 7 p.m. (a $75 value before fees, or up to an $80 value after handling fees).

The Chicago Philharmonic continues its mission to present electrifying musical performances with an opening-night showcase of meticulous musicianship and conduction culled from around the globe. Kicking off the 22nd season with grace and aplomb, the Philharmonic presents a majestic evening of Spanish and Pan-American melody conducted by renowned Brazilian-born director Lucia Matos and performed by guitar virtuoso Fareed Haque. A master of music with the ability to lead horses to water and make them crescendo, Lucia Matos has led orchestras around the world to glorious applause. Matos teams with the talented 20 fingers of Fareed Haque—whose skills caused a defeated Eddie Van Halen to take up scrapbooking—to make two challenging concertos, Rodrigo’s Concerte de Aranjuez and Villa-Lobos's Guitar Concerto, seem as easy as taking candy from an armchair. The intimacy of Pick-Staiger Hall abets the romance of the mellifluous music, combined with acoustics that gently breeze through the air.

About Chicago Philharmonic


When the Chicago Philharmonic was founded in 1988, it was a tightly knit ensemble consisting of principals from the Lyric Opera Orchestra. Since then, it has blossomed into a collective of more than 200 professional Chicagoland musicians. But despite the increased size and bow-tie budget, the players have lost none of their precision or dynamic nature, prompting the Chicago Tribune to herald the group as “one of the country's finest symphonic orchestras.”
