NEC Fall Concert Series Opener: Wolff conducts Brahms

It's that time of year again - time for the first FREE classical music concert for the fall season at the New England Conservatory of Music!

Tonight, maestro Hugh Wolff, the NEC's Calderwood Director of Orchestras, kicks off the school's Music: Truth To Power themed fall season with the North American premier of Tan Dun’s Concerto for Orchestra. Also on the program will be Brahms' symphony No. 1.  (Listen to excepts below.)

Note: Hugh Wolff's concerts are typically packed, and this being the first of the season, it's best to be early, so let's meet up at 7:15pm, so the group has a chance to get good seats and socialize before the concert.  We usually end up sitting in left-middle section of the balcony, since this affords a good view of the entire orchestra, is open to the ceiling, and is easy to describe and find, and it is relatively easy to grab a large block of seats there.

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:

Tan Dun’s Concerto for Orchestra

Brahms Symphony No. 1

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.
