McGraw-Hill Carnegie Kids’ Class Notes

Who says classical music is just for adults? At McGraw-Hill Carnegie Kids’ ClassNotes concert, teaching musicians lead families in deconstructing music through storytelling, active listening activities, and more fun than you ever would have imagined. In this free 45-minute session of interactive jamming, little ears will get to hear what may be thought of as intimidating music as a great way to express our rollercoaster of feelings.

$20 to See Jenny Q Chai Piano Concert at Carnegie Hall and After-Show Meet and Greet on April 19 (Up to $46 Value)

An iconic venue adds a sense of dignity to any performance, which is why prop comics are always trying to book the Louvre. Find an artist suited to her frame with this GrouponLive deal to see pianist Jenny Q Chai in concert at Zankel Hall in Carnegie Hall on Thursday, April 19, at 7:30 p.m. For $20, you get a concert package (up to a $46 value), which includes:

  • One general-admission ticket (up to a $36 value, including all fees)
  • Meet and greet after the show at Red 58 (a $10 value)

Classical favorites and the premiere of modern compositions fly from the fingers of acclaimed pianist Jenny Q Chai, who scooped first prize for solo contemporary piano at last year’s Keys to the Future festival. At Carnegie Hall, she’ll revisit the Ligeti étude that carried her to victory in a performance the New York Times acclaimed for its “rich tone and rhythmic clarity.”

Along with Ligeti, classical compositions by Debussy, Messiaen, Kurtag, and Schumann join forces with premieres by Korean composer Inhyun Kim, Taiwanese composer Ashley Fu-Tsun Wang, and Italian composer Marco Stroppa for an evening of jaw-dropping dexterity. Chai will exercise the training she picked up on three continents during Debussy’s Étude no. 3 “pour les quartes.” This famously difficult piece has been challenging master musicians since its composition in 1915, when pianists hadn’t yet discovered the pinky. Schumann’s Kreisleriana also makes demands equal to Chai’s virtuosity during frenetic stretches when its thunderous chords and resounding melodies seem hammered from the piano’s very wood.

Zankel Hall, despite its seemingly inauspicious abode in Carnegie Hall’s basement, is actually the space where the famous venue’s first performance, a piano recital, took place in 1891. In 2003, the hall underwent a $72 million renovation, which lined the sleek space with forest-green seats and glowing, light-wood paneling that cushions what New York calls “marvelous” acoustics.

After the show, Groupon customers take a three-minute stroll to Red 58. As candlelight flickers across the sleek lounge, fans meet with Miss Chai, who can answer questions about the performance, the compositions, and the harmonics of the taxi horns honking on Seventh Avenue.
