Brahms, Berlioz, and Strauss

Join the Chicago Philharmonic at Nichols Concert Hall on Sunday, November 10, 2013 for a Romantic Serenade!

Call[masked] now! Mention the code MEET to purchase main floor tickets at the discounted price of $25/each!

Joel Smirnoff returns to the podium to lead a diverse program of Romantic music, opening with the beautiful sound of Chicago Philharmonic Concertmaster David Perry in Hector Berlioz' Reverie et Caprice.

The intense pathos and introspective Romanticism of Richard Strauss' Orchestra work, Metamorphosen, follows. Johannes Brahms' Second Serenade for Orchestra concludes afternoon. Brahms relies on the darker timbre of the lower strings and winds, yet there still remains the unmistakable Romantic charm of the 19th century. In a stimulating discussion, Northwestern University musicology professor Jesse Rosenberg illuminates the cultural and musical worlds of the Romantic Era, a special enhancement to the typical concert experience.

    Sylvie, can we get a group discount code for Feb 16? I'd like to put this on the calendar.

      Absolutely! The office is working on a discount code to give you. I'll let you know as soon as I get it. Thank you!

    My review somehow got truncated, so I'll repeat it. The Chicago Philharmonic, made up of members of the Lyric orchestra, rivals the CSO in quality. Sitting just 15 feet from the conductor is something I couldn't hope to get in Orchestra Hall. It's a different kind of experience, and I'm grateful it's available to this group at a reasonable cost. I also liked the Colin Hall venue -- it's smaller than Pick Staiger but offers an intimacy as a tradeoff. Looking forward to the next in the series!

      Scott, this is a great review. Would you mind if the Chicago Philharmonic used it as a testimonial (provided we correct the venue from Colin Hall to Nichols Hall)? Just let me know. Thanks again...

    The Chicago Philharmonic would like to reserve blocks of seats for Meet up members, so that everyone can at least say hello at one point during the event. How do you guys feel about that?

      That would be great. Then I could meet people.

    I stayed for the first half. Really loved it but another commitment got in the way. It would have been good to meet you all. It was impossible to recognize faces from the little pix on line.

    Have we decided upon a place to meet before the concert?

    This will be my first meetup in Evanston/Chicago. I am looking forward to the concert and to meeting some new friends.

    I am slated to work the concert, Scott, but I would love to see the group meet...There are two restaurants just around the corner, Kansaku and Prairie Moon, open for lunch. Pete Miller's is open for dinner only. There are other options, I am sure, starting with the always reliable coffee shops. Anyone has a solid idea?

    Would it possible to meet before the concert?
