Love is like a heated game of Battleship—the explosive moments of passion are bookended by the occasional sinking feeling. Lose yourself in romance with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $25, you get two general-admission tickets to Renovo String Orchestra’s "Romantic Abandon" concert at the Music Institute of Chicago's Nichols Concert Hall in Evanston on Friday, February 10, at 7:30 p.m. (up to a $51 value, including all fees).

The 14 virtuosos of the Renovo String Orchestra augment a repertoire of classic compositions with works by emerging artists and deep-rooted community involvement. Guest violinist Dmitri Pogorelov joins violist Ben Weber among the group's regular crescendo creators during "Romantic Abandon." Serbian composer Aleksandar Simic's "In Memoriam" clears tear ducts of soap-opera residue before the livelier tumult of one of Mendelssohn's youthful compositions quickens heartbeats. Finally, Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings draws deeply on the orchestra's well of talent and adds historical weight to the all-engulfing sound with melodies lifted from classic Russian folk songs and cartoons. Nichols Concert Hall contrasts the plush hum with a more austere beauty, its dark wood pews descending to a stage flanked by ionic columns and limned by late-winter twilight from high windows.
