NEC Spring Concert Series: NEC Chamber Orchestra + Finzi, Mozart and Honegger

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

Tonight, the wonderful NEC Chamber Orchestra will be performing 2 20th century works from Finzi and Honegger, and Mozart's piano concerto for chamber orchestra, featuring pianist Wenbin Jin, '13.

I've been told by Donald Palma, the coach of the Chamber Orchestra, that tonight's program will be particularly good.  Don't miss it!

(Listen to excerpts below; the names in the list link to youtube performances of the works.  For more information on this concert, visit: http://necmusic.edu/nec-chamber-orchestra-2.)

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:

    All,

    Prior to the performance, there will be a pre-concert talk at 7:15 pm. in Jordan Hall. Called "Meet the Players" on the poster, it will feature five orchestra musicians who will go into depth about the music being played and will engage in informal conversation with the audience. If you want to attend that, feel free, but, in that case, get there before 7:15!
