Music achieves its full emotional effect only when performed live, just as great literature becomes comprehensible only when screamed aloud in a crowded subway train. Enjoy public performance with today's GrouponLive deal: for $12, you get one general-admission reserved ticket to International Guitar Night at the University Centre Farquhar Auditorium on Sunday, November 6, at 7:30 p.m. (a $25 value).
Bringing together some of the world's foremost acoustic guitarists, International Guitar Night regales note-starved ears with a sonic soufflé of plucked-string melodies. IGN founder Brian Gore will join Gypsy jazz master Lulo Reinhardt—great nephew of the famed Django Reinhardt—as well as English acoustic wizard Adrian Legg and Brazilian Marco Pereira, plucking strings with the deftness of a robotic string-cheese peeler. All four musicians will play together, showcasing new compositions and backing each other up in exquisite displays of technical and melodic mastery. The University Centre Farquhar Auditorium cradles airborne notes in its acoustically tuned space with cedar baffles, an unvarnished stage, and reverb-dampening walls, preventing shy melodies from getting lost en route to eager ears.
Though the University Centre Farquhar Auditorium offers student tickets for $15, this Groupon still offers the best value for most customers.
