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 this GrouponLive deal to see the Grand Rapids Symphony's Colorful Contrast at St. Cecilia Music Center's Royce Auditorium on Thursday, March 22, at 7 p.m. For $8, you get one ticket (up to a $22.75 value, including all fees). Best-available seating will be assigned at the time of purchase.

Conductor Tito Muñoz—typically seen commanding the beat of the Opéra national de Lorraine—makes Royce Auditorium's commanding architecture and exquisite acoustics his canvas in Colorful Contrast, an exhibition of mood pieces from the 20th century and beyond. The one-hour concert dawns with John Corigliano's Elegy for Orchestra, a sinuous, flute-led piece that recalls the hope of a new day after a long night battling boogey men.

Next is Finding Rothko, a newer work by up-and-coming composer Adam Schoenberg, himself a onetime student of Corigliano. The 16-minute piece races through aural representations of four Rothko canvases, conveying the exhilaration of being drawn into his bright blocks of color and the more reflective mood brought on by subtler shades. To complete the evening, de Falla's The Three-Cornered Hat interjects a note of bawdy mirth drawn from a tale of cuckoldry and comic revenge set after a milliner locks up for the evening, and Prokofiev's Symphony no. 1 energetically evokes the neo-classical movement.

This was our first concert at Cannonsburg, but it won't be our last one! It was an amazing show with a stellar guest. Groupon gives me an opportunity to try something first at a discount and I love that!
