Lady Gaga borrowed Botticelli's The Birth of Venus wholesale in her latest album, but before her platform stilts and wig collection, Italian composer Ottorino Respighi also wrote an ode to the goddess of love emerging from the seafoam. He grouped the piece with two more based on other works by the Florentine to create Trittico Botticelliano, which the Chamber Orchestra of the Springs will perform this afternoon at 2:30 (come early for a pre-concert lecture) at First Christian Church (16 E. Platte Ave., They'll also hit up Saint-Saëns, Elgar and Ravel (as they did last night at 7 at Broadmoor Community Church, 315 Lake Ave.). Tickets are $20 for adults, $17 for seniors and $5 for kids. — Edie Adelstein
