While 20% of babies who were exposed to classical music in utero become doctors or lawyers, 100% of babies born onstage during a classical music performance become Bill Gates. Welcome a bundle of timeless tunes with today's Groupon: for $130, you get two price level two tickets to the three-concert Inside the Classics series from the Minnesota Orchestra (a $272 value). Inside the Classics concerts begin at 8 p.m. Choose between two dates for each of the following performances:
- Dvořák’s Symphony no. 7, January 28 or 29
- Ravel's Daphnis and Chloe, March 25 or 26
- Stravinsky's Rite of Spring, May 13 or 14
The Inside the Classics series, led by conductor Sarah Hicks and host Sam Bergman, begins each show with fascinating exploration of the program to help prepare the ears of novice noise fans and seasoned concertgoers alike for the musical onslaught to come. From prime level two seats at Orchestra Hall, Groupon-holders can stir with the simmering passions of Dvořák’s Symphony no. 7, wander the ethereal half-remembered dreamscapes of Ravel's Daphnis and Chloe, and get turned into rabbits by the weird, fertile energy of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring. The series includes one parking space per concert at the 11th Street and Marquette Avenue parking ramp.
Returning from its historic tour to Cuba in May of 2015 and Carnegie Hall last March, the Grammy Award–winning Minnesota Orchestra celebrates its second century as one of America’s premier symphonic ensembles, gathering accolades from publications such as the New York Times.
