Now in its 49th season, the Pittsburgh Chamber Music Society continues to attract renowned chamber ensembles, from virtuosic string quartets to ivory-pounding pianists. With this deal, you can catch any of the remaining shows in the 2010–11 season, including the upcoming November 8 show with clarinetist Jon Manasse and pianist Jon Nakamatsu, who'll perform a Brahms sonata, a Mendelssohn piece, and more. Those lobbying to put Beethoven on the cover of Teen Beat can immerse themselves in the hunky German's melodies on November 29, when the acclaimed Pacifica Quartet comes to town. Or celebrate the holiday season with Christmas classics at the Empire Brass's festive concert on December 13, guest starring vocalist Elisabeth von Trapp, granddaughter of Baron Georg and Maria von Trapp from MTV's classic reality show, The Sound of Music.
The Pittsburgh Chamber Music Society holds some of its concerts in the acoustically rich Carnegie Music Hall, an intimate yet grandiose venue that allows music-lovers to wrap themselves in warm harmonies on cold, soundless evenings. Experience the sounds of some of the world's most talented classical musicians as they weave melodies, perform timeless themes, and leave the stage demolished and partly aflame with today's Groupon to the Pittsburgh Chamber Music Society.
Groupons will be accepted at the door of the event, or call ahead to reserve specific seats.
While there aren't many online user reviews for the Pittsburgh Chamber Music Society, it has more than 220 Facebook fans.
