NEC Spring Concert Series: NEC Chamber Orchestra + Finzi, Mozart and Honegger

 

To all you Social Fun classical music lovers who aren't also in Nerd Fun:

I run a series of FREE events at the New England Conservatory for Nerd Fun, and want my Social Fun friends to come too! (But please don't double RSVP.)

Tonight, the wonderful NEC Chamber Orchestra will be performing 2 20th century works from Finzi and Honegger, and Mozart's piano concerto for chamber orchestra, featuring pianist Wenbin Jin, '13.

I've been told by Donald Palma, the coach of the Chamber Orchestra, that tonight's program will be particularly good.  Don't miss it!

(Listen to excerpts below; the names in the list link to youtube performances of the works.  For more information on this concert, visit: http://necmusic.edu/nec-chamber-orchestra-2.)

Let's 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.  We will probably end up sitting in the back of the center section in the main hall, as they usually don't open the balcony for these concerts.

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.

    Five members of the orchestra discussed Finzi & Honegger and answered some questions prior to the concert which made it interesting.
    Wenbin Jin's piano performance was spellbinding!
