University Symphony Orchestra (It's free!)

The University Symphony Orchestra (USO) puts on a number of free concerts throughout the school year. This Wednesday, the conductor, Kenneth Kiesler, will give a pre-concert lecture at 7:15 in the Lower Lobby of Hill Auditorium. The lectures give the music a certain context that reading the program just doesn't do! 

After the lecture, we'll head up to either the mezzanine or balcony level for the concert which starts at 8:00pm. The USO will perform "an evening of contrasts and counterpoint juxtaposing one of the most richly melodic and deeply expressive works of Johannes Brahms with the evocative, rhythmic and opulent Spanish works of the French composer, Maurice Ravel." 

For those of you who would like to know ahead of time, the program entails:

• Brahms – Symphony No. 3

• Ravel – Alborada del Gracioso

• Ravel – Bolero

We could even grab a drink afterwards, if anyone is open to it!

    Wasn't Ravel's Bolero well-done? Sorry to have not found you all. (Looks like you were in the balcony.)

    Sorry for the late notice but I will not be attending this evening as planned. I wanted to be there but apparently my car didn't.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
