Every Note Must Go 

Classical music isn't for everyone. But perhaps the folks who prefer the thrashing of electric guitars and keyboards could get into the badass-ery of Brahms and Ravel if the first taste was free, and if it was performed by an internationally renowned musician. Well, would-be Rachmaninoff aficionados, the organizers of the Harriman-Jewell Series have your empty wallet in mind for this show. Sultry Italian-born pianist Alessio Bax will stroke the ivories to music of all the aforementioned composers, plus Bartók and Granados. And unlike some introductory concerts, the Harriman-Jewell Series Discovery Concert doesn't happen at a library or makeshift performance space. Nope, the people at Harriman-Jewell want everyone who acquires a free ticket, via hjseries.org or 816-415-5025, to revel in the acoustically glorious Folly Theater (300 West 12th Street), where most of the series' other events take place. Bax begins at 7 p.m.— Crystal K. Wiebe

Alessio Bax plays for free at the Folly.
