NEC Fall Concert Series: Loebel + Sibelius and Ives


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 takes to the stage to conduct Ives: A Symphony: New England Holidays, and Sibelius' Symphony No. 7 (Listen to excepts below; the names in the list link to youtube performances of the works.)

For more information about this concert, go to

Let's meet up at 7:15pm, so the group can grab a bunch of seats together when the doors open at 7:30, and then 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, (particularly good when a pianist is playing), 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 enjoyed the Sibelius, for the most part, but the piece by Ives was a horribly failed experiment-a huge, unwieldy, cacophonous mess. Fortunately, for me there's more to any meetup than the planned "activity," and it was a pleasure to spend a few hours in the company of established friends while making one or two new friends. Thanks, again, Will for organizing.

    Enjoyed the Sibelius more than I thought I would, and learned that I hate Charles Ives. He's like the anti-Copland. Couldn't wait for it to end, and go take something for the resulting headache. I promise next week will be waaaay better!
