Two of Tulsa's classical music organizations will offer special events Saturday that will combine fine coffee with words and music.
Chamber Music Tulsa will present the latest in its series of "Mochas with a Musicologist," with Jason Heilman, 10 a.m. Saturday at the DoubleShot Coffee Company, 1730 S. Boston Ave.
Heilman, who does the pre-concert talks at Chamber Music Tulsa concerts, as well as introducing the concerts by the Tulsa Camerata, will talk about some of the music that will be performed during the second half of the CMT season.
Heilman will also conduct a question-and-answer session.
Chamber Music Tulsa's season includes performances by the Tesla Quartet, Feb. 16-17; the Quartteto di Cremona, March 16-17; and the Gryphon Trio, April 13-14. All Chamber Music Tulsa concerts are at the Tulsa PAC.
Tulsa Opera will host one of its "Opera Underground" events beginning at 10:30 p.m. Saturday at the Coffee House on Cherry Street, 1502 E. 15th St.
Artists of Tulsa Opera will be performing five selections from, and then talking about, "The Most Happy Fella," the Frank Loesser musical that is Tulsa Opera's upcoming production, Feb. 23, March 1 and 3 at the Tulsa PAC.
