Hi All, It's time for the next FREE classical music concert for the spring season at the New England Conservatory of Music!
This season, Will is unable to regularly commit to hosting, so he's enlisted help! Tonight's last-minute concert was rescheduled after the big snowstorm we had last Wednesday, and Kirk has volunteered to host. Associate Director of Orchestras David Loebel conducts Beethoven's Symphony No. 3 "Eroica" and Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Joseph Schwantner's New Morning for the World, based on Martin Luther King, Jr.'s words. Massachusetts Governor Deval L. Patrick will read the text in this performance. For more information about this concert, visit: http://necmusic.edu/nec-symphony-loebel-1
(Listen to excerpts below; the names in the list link to youtube performances of the works.)
We should 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. The group usually sits in the balcony, on the left side, in the 2nd section to the left in the above picture. For this concert, Kirk will meet you downstairs to orient you to our favorite section. He will have a meetup button and might wear a shirt that is red and white(close to meetup colors).
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:
Joseph Schwantner New Morning for the World
Beethoven, Symphony no. 3 (Eroica)
