Even though most of our families live far away from Boston, I hope all of you had the chance to spend Thanksgiving with some of your favorite and dearest people. In the same way, I hope everyone is ready for the next BYIP meetup event, which is going to be a blast of course.
Lately I have had the chance to talk to some of the folks at MeetUp, and some of them highlighted the lack of creativity from organizers when organizing events during the winter. No that there is anything wrong with going for a drink or bowling, but I thought it would be great to do something different, and of course, being a music/audio professional myself, music is always the first thing that comes to my mind.
Every year Berklee College of Music selects some of the best musicians in the college to perform at the Singers Showcase. This is a great show, with great musicians and great music. Having played in this show a few times myself in the past, I can guarantee that it is totally worth it.
This year Singers Showcase, Berklee's premier vocal event, pays tribute to the late Whitney Houston, even if based on past experience, I expect to hear the music of other artists as well....anyways it will definitely going to be the kind of music that is enjoyable by everyone....nothing like John Cage hitting the piano with cans of soda or things like that...
THIS IS HOW IT WILL WORK:
On Thursday December 6, we will meet at 7.45pm outside the green line T stop Hynes Convention Center, which is basically right across from Berklee Performance Center. We will wait a few minutes for other folks to arrive, and then head to the BPC. The concert will start at 8.15, so if you can't meet us at 7.45, feel free to text me so that I can come out to meet you and bring you to us. (781) 363-1458. I expect the concert to last for about 2 hours.
Purchasing the ticket is on you, so I HIGHLY recommend getting the ticket online (more instructions on ticket purchase below), but you have also the option to get the ticket at the box office right before the show. If you do so, expect to wait in line in order to get the ticket.
The ticket is averagely $12 (depending on the seat), and can be purchased by following this link:
I can see that only a few seats are available in the ORCHESTRA 1 section, so I suggest getting a ticket for the ORCHESTRA 2 section. Additionally, if we all get a ticket for the ORCHESTRA 2 section, we most likely will find seats next to each other rather than being all over the place.
I think tickets will be sold pretty fast, so if you think you'll come try to get it sooner rather than later.
Finally, after the concert I expect to go for a drink somewhere around the Performance Center, so everyone is super welcome to join for more fun even after the concert!
Hope to see many of you there.
