When used to accompany films, classical music can transform a kiss into a revelation and a longing glance in the pouring rain into something not completely pathetic. Witness the transformative power of music with this GrouponLive deal: for $15, you get one ticket for best-available reserved seating to see the York Symphony Orchestra at the Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts (up to a $30 value). Choose between the following concerts:

Student tickets are regularly $15 each.

Between the jovial Roman Carnival Overture and the sweeping grandeur of Dvořák’s Symphony No. 6 stands the heart of “Northern Images,” Edvard Grieg’s Piano Concerto in A Minor. Ever the melancholy Norwegian, Grieg lets his dark opening chords flower into a field of warm strings and gentle flute under the rainfall of tumbling piano arpeggios. Guest pianist Maggie Ho coaxes the mood from unease to relief and back again under the direction of Brazilian guest conductor Raphael Luz.

In May, “The Mighty Horn” showcases the french horn of Toronto Brass Quintet member Olivia Brayley. The instrument’s playful side gleams just as brightly as its formidable power throughout the evening. Strauss’s Till Eulenspiegel’s Merry Pranks uses horn and the clarinet to evoke the ceaseless laughter of the title’s medieval German prankster. The picaresque tale takes the orchestra through galloping horseback rides, half-serious wooing of countryside women, and jests made at the expense of clergy and academics alike. In its substantial cast of characters, the piece matches Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf for its anthropomorphism and accessibility.

York Symphony Orchestra music director Gregory Burton’s baton has guided members of the New York Philharmonic and Boston Symphony in addition to his own battalion of 70 to 80 players. The ensemble, many of whom are professional musicians, often share the stage with guest artists handpicked from around the globe and drumsticks stolen from Mötley Crüe’s dressing room.

Though the York Symphony Orchestra features discounts for seniors, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
