It's time for the next FREE classical music concert for the fall season at the New England Conservatory of Music!
Tonight, Guest conductor Julian Kuerti leads the NEC Philharmonia orchestra, pairing music by Henze and Mendelssohn inspired by A Midsummer Night's Dream, along with more from Berlioz and Respighi. (Listen to excerpts below.)
Let's meet up at 7:15pm, so the group can grab a bunch of seats together when the doors open at 7:30, and then 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, (particularly good when a pianist is playing), 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:
