Rounding out the docket of dulcet tones is a suite inspired by three paintings by Sandro Botticelli, as well as a suite from Kurt Weill's The Threepenny Opera, and Mozart’s Symphony no. 35, Haffner, a technically demanding piece notorious for being written in the mysterious third clef. Sitting in grand-tier balcony seats, Groupon customers can tune their ossicles to the sweet sounds and unsweetened silence resounding through the Koger Center's acoustically designed chamber.
