NEC Fall Concert Series: Loebel + Smetana, Mozart, Weber, Hindemith

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

Tonight, David Loebel, NEC's Associate Director of Orchestras, conducts the famous and beautiful "Moldau" by Smetana, Mozart's Prague symphony, a Weber work adapted by Berlioz, and Hindemith work inspired by a Weber theme. (Listen to excepts below.)

For more information about this concert, go to

Let's meet up at 7:30pm, when the doors open, 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:

    Hi Nish and everyone. I was there too, and it was wonderful! My husband an I loved it. I was also new to this meet up group and we got there a little late, so we were directed to seats that turned out to be the Right middle balcony. Oh well. I did look over when I got my bearings and saw you, Will, (I recognized you from your photo) but everyone was gone before I could get down after the concert. In any case, it was wonderful. Thank you Will for turning us on to these free concerts. Next time I will know better where to be.
    My best to all of you.

    Guys, this is my first meetup event, and my boyfriend will be with me. Do I take a printout of this and collect tickets/passes from the box office? Or just go and grab seats? How do I know people from meetup (to socialize before the event)?

      Rudy, These concerts are no-ticket, first come/first seated events. The doors open at 7:30, but I ask my group to get there before this, so we can all go in as a group and get seats together. I 'walk the line' before the doors open, handing out meetup stickers to my group members, introducing myself and other members, so that people know what's happening and can identify each other.

    Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend, as I foolishly committed to a competing "pay" event that promises to be only "so-so," forgetting all about this (free)event that promises to be wonderful...-heavy sigh-
    Ah, well. Enjoy all!

    So I need to break out of my rut. Told myself for years all I really liked was Mahler. Beethoven, Brahms, Handel, Mozart are boring. Burnt myself out on Chopin. Couldn't crack Wagner. Couldn't crack Bruckner (never tried hard enough).
    Of course there's Bach, but is there life after the Goldberg Variations or the Cello Suites?
    I'm sure there's somebody out there who can thrill me the way Mahler does. I just don't know who it is. Maybe it will turn out to be Smetana or Weber or Berlioz or Hindemith. We'll see. (Though I seriously doubt that anyone who drew a breath in the 20th century will send me.)
