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 today's GrouponLive deal: for $31, you get two tickets to the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra's Late Night with Bill Eddins concert "Romantics" at the Winspear Centre on Friday, January 13, at 9:30 p.m. (up to a $62 value, including all ticketing fees). Seating will be in the orchestra section.

Celebrating its 60th season, the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra transports listeners into states of auditory delight with programs that showcase the works of symphonic masters. Led by ESO music director William Eddins, Late Night with Bill Eddins combines carefully curated programs with erudite, post-show discussion, enlightening concertgoers with information on the music, composers, and how the orchestra decides who gets to play the triangle. "Romantics" features the ivory-caressing skills of Croatian-American pianist Kemal Gekić, interpreting Fantasia on The Ruins of Athens by the fiery composer Franz Liszt. Keyboard fireworks are bracketed by Richard Strauss' densely textured Don Juan and the adagio from Rachmaninoff's Second Symphony. The program finishes off with Liszt's arrangement of Gioachino Rossini's famous William Tell Overture, letting the orchestra revel in bombastic flourish while an archer shoots apples off each of their heads.

After absorbing the music and digesting Eddins' talk, guests can rise from their seats for drinks to lubricate conversational muscles. The Winspear Centre offers melodies the perfect space to spread their wings, with carefully calibrated acoustics that dampen interfering noise with a two-inch isolation joint and one shushing librarian between each of the centre's wings.

Love Bill Eddins Do this more often!!! The place was packed and I think most of us would go again! I was even happy to see most of the Groupon purchasers were dressed properly for the occasion. This was a very positive experience and I would love to see it again!
