The seven movements of Mozart's serenade balance the imposing Richard Strauss tone poem, written at age 26, depicting the death of an artist. Then soprano Amber Wagner joins the orchestra for the final completed works of Strauss, the evocative Four Last Songs, written when he was 84.
NOTE: I have 2 extra tickets, good seats in the Orchestra section, row O. These are $54 tickets which I am willing to part with for half price -- just $27 each. Buy one or both, first come, first served. Contact Phil Mandel, Organizer.

Let's get there at 7:00 (curtain is at 7:30) and meet in the Broadway lobby, near the glass doors to your left immediately after you show your ticket (across from the CDs for sale table). PLEASE note the suggested time to meet (7:00). If you arrive after that time, you may be on your own. I recommend planning to arrive by 6:45 in case of parking delays, etc. --Phil Mandel
