NEC Spring Concert Series: Biss + Mendelssohn, Tchaikovsky, & Rouse

It's time for the next FREE classical music concert for the spring season at the New England Conservatory of Music!

Tonight, professor Paul Biss conducts the NEC Philharmonia in a program featuring Mendelssohn's violin concerto, Tchaikovsky's 6th symphony, & a work by Christopher Rouse. (Listen to excerpts below; the names in the list link to youtube performances of the works.)

Let's meet up at no later than 7:30pm, so the group can grab a bunch of seats together when the doors open, and then socialize before the concert.  We will probably end up sitting in the back of the center section in the main hall, as they usually don't open the balcony for these concerts.

Directions to Jordan Hall:
The hall is located at the corner of Huntington and Gainsborough streets, about a block south of the Symphony T stop on the Green Line. It's also close to the Mass Ave station on the Orange line.  Look for the building with the YMCA sign on top of it as you walk down Huntington Ave--it's near that building. The main entrance is reached from Gainsborough Street.

This evening's program will include:

    To the 27 of you who RSVP'd and then didn't come, you missed one hell of a concert. Wonderful pieces, entertainingly conducted, and expertly performed. Truly a memorable evening. Thanks to everyone who braved the weather to come out and enjoy it with me!

    This concert was phenomenal! Loved the Infernal Machine and the Mendelssohn violin concerto was exquisite. Hope they post it on their website w/instant-encore. Group was great company!

      Ditto to what Kathleen said. The rendition we heard tonight of Tchaikovsky's 6th Symphony also was outstanding-so powerful. These concerts are such a gift. Thanks, as always, Will.
