Seeing live music can be a transcendent mind-body experience, akin to getting a tattoo underwater or making out during an eclipse. Transcend boredom with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a ticket to a piano performance by classically trained pianist Daria Rabotkina, presented by the Rockford Coronado Concert Association. The show takes place on Sunday, April 10 at 3 p.m. at the Coronado Performing Arts Center on North Main Street (a $45 value).
Created in 1936 to bolster fine-arts exposure, the Rockford Coronado Concert Association brings box-office lurkers five classical, semiclassical, and dance performances each season at the architecturally stunning Coronado Performing Arts Center.
With this deal, you’ll swim in a soundscape created by Russian pianist Daria Rabotkina, who first enthralled audiences with her enigmatic musicianship in a solo recital at age 10. Performing at hallowed venues such as New York’s Carnegie Hall and the Atlantic Ocean’s Underwater Manatee Palace, Rabotkina recently tickled the ivories in the studio to record her debut recital disc, touting tunes such as the Tchaikovsky Grand Sonata and Prokofiev's “Ten Pieces” from Romeo and Juliet.
Coronado Theatre's old-fashioned front façade entices entrants to advance into an aesthetic treasure trove of ornate golden moldings, rich scarlet seats, and a midnight-blue sky-ceiling so authentic you can almost see overachieving penguins in flight. Delight in architectural opulence as you enjoy a dose of sonic drama generated at the talented hands of Daria Rabotkina with today’s Groupon.
