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

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, 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:

    I'm looking forward to this! However, I'm going to be up Mass Ave by Berklee til 7:30 which will make me 10 minutes or so late, they don't have a "Do-Not-Enter-During-Performance" rule do they?

      Out of respect for the musicians and the audience, once the performance starts, they do not allow people to enter the hall until a break in the music, either between movements or pieces, depending on the work. So, you may have to stand outside the hall and listen until they can let you in.

      So Srry Will, I thought I emailed you and was looking for a reply there. I thought of checking here. Thank you for getting back to me. Looks like I'll be OK. I see the grp's meeting at 7:30, but the performance isn't til 8. I should be @ Jordan Hall by 7:45, so I will look for you left of center in the balcony if I arrive after you've already gone upstairs. Thanks. Looking forward to it.
