Though classical recordings can be outstanding, sonic transcendence can only be achieved through a live orchestral performance, replete with soaring crescendos, F-16 flyovers, and a jumbotron with instant replay. Feast your ears on fresh-played music with today's Groupon: for $20, you get one B-section ticket to a Fairfax Symphony Orchestra performance at George Mason University's Center for the Arts in Fairfax. Choose from the following shows:

  • Saturday, September 17 at 8 p.m., featuring guest conductor William Boughton with violinist Karina Canellakis (a $45 value)
  • Saturday, October 22 at 8 p.m., featuring a new work by Chilean composer Javier Farias (a $45 value)
  • Saturday, November 12 at 8 p.m., featuring harpist Yolanda Kondonassis (a $45 value)

Helmed by charismatic conductor Christopher Zimmerman and recently praised by the Washington Post, the highly acclaimed Fairfax Symphony Orchestra debuts its new season with a trio of concerts celebrating the works of composers from across the globe. On September 17, guest conductor William Boughton takes the helm as Karina Canellakis's violin sails above the orchestra through the romantic melodies and lush harmonic textures of French and American composers. October 22 brings a trio of exotic arrangements, showcasing a newly commissioned work by composer Javier Farias. During the performance, singing strings are peppered with Chilean instruments played by the Alturas Duo, including guitar, charango, and viola. A mélange of classic composers populates the performance on November 12, as Mozart, Barber, Ginastera, and Schubert strut their stuff through ambrosial violins and the harp of Yolanda Kondonassis. Patrons who arrive one hour before the Saturday performances will be treated to complimentary preconcert lectures about the night's upcoming melodies and how to telekinetically play a tuba.
