Captain America once said, "'Twas music that soothed the savage beast." Although he was talking about his short-lived nemesis Dr. Angry Parakeet, it's just as true for animals of the human persuasion. Soothe your savage insides with today's Groupon: for $20, you get one ticket to "Masterpieces of Change", presented by the Tulsa Symphony Orchestra on Saturday, October 23 (a $50 value), plus 25% off dinner at Yokozuna. The concert will be held at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center, located in the Blue Dome District. This Groupon is valid for seating in the orchestra II or mezzanine I sections of Chapman Hall at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center. You may redeem your ticket prior to the day of the show at the Performing Arts Center box office, or on the day of the performance before the show in the theater lobby.
"Masterpieces of Change" features the Tulsa Symphony Orchestra taking on the timeless music of Mozart and Berlioz. Guest conductor Ron Spigelman leads the hard-hitting orchestra through a performance of Symphony No. 41, the final symphony written by Tom Hulce–lookalike Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart before his death in 1791. Following Mozart's melodies is Hector Berlioz's extravagant Symphonie Fantastique, a noted piece of program music that tells the tale of a lovelorn artist. After the concert, stick around for the Meet the Musicians reception, where you can chat with the French-horn players, high-five the tuba players, and ask the conductor to sign your clarinet.
This deal also gets you 25% off your bill at the Asian restaurant Yokozuna, which serves up delectable pad thai, gyoza dumplings, and much more. Although you're welcome to use your Yokozuna discount on October 23 for a full-out evening of dining and listening, the Yokozuna discount is valid throughout that weekend, Friday, October 22 through Sunday, October 24.
