NEC Spring Concert Series: Loebel, Szymanski + Berwald, Copland, Ravel & Strauss

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

Tonight, The NEC Symphony offers a terrific program of pieces from Berwald, Copland, Ravel and Strauss, under the direction of conductors David Loebel and conducting graduate student Matthew Szymanski.

Included in the program will be four dances from Copland's Rodeo, including one of my all-time favorite pieces: Hoe-Down (the famous "Beef: It's what's for dinner!" soundtrack, for those who remember it-- I would go just to hear this live. :) (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:

    Ravel was mad fun. Plenty of interesting, approachable folks. Few armadillos.

    How long do these free concerts last (assuming apprx 8p to 10p)? Do people meet after the concert for drinks, etc.? Thanks.

      That's about right - usually they end between 9:30 and 10. Activities afterwards are spur-of-the-moment and are up to the participants who show up.
