Hi there,

So, we all sampled enough of chamber music during month of September. Now it's time that we get our act together and go to real thing right?. Ok, I have a good one for you. In fact, it's literally a DYING-TO-SEE event i should admit. Please read below for details:

The 3 B's, with Jon Nakamatsu

When: Saturday, Oct 16, 2010 - 8:00 pm
Where: Flint Center/DeAnza College
(Address:21250 Stevens Creek Blvd., De Anza College, Cupertino)

- Johann Sebastian Bach: Toccata and Fugue in D Minor

- Ludwig van Beethoven: Concerto No. 3 in C Minor, Op. 37

- Johannes Brahms: Symphony No. 2 in D Major, Op. 73

We are thrilled to welcome the celebrated 1997 Van Cliburn Competition laureate back to perform one of the landmark works of the piano repertoire, Beethoven?s great C Minor Concerto. Nakamatsu and I have a long shared history of collaborative music making,? remarks Music Director and Conductor, Mitchell Sardou Klein.

The program for these concerts consists entirely of major masterworks by ?the three B?s.? To begin, Bach?s Cantata Chorale: Ein? feste Burg ist unser Gott, and Great Fugue: Clavierubung III, Wir glauben all?an einem Gott come to vibrant symphonic life in the hands of the master conductor and orchestrator Leopold Stokowski the greatest orchestral colorist of all time. Beethoven?s Third Piano Concerto stems from his dark, stormy mode, with music that challenges any pianist?s or orchestra?s technical and interpretive powers. Lastly, Brahms? glorious and triumphal Second Symphony completes this trio of majestic classical benchmark achievements. This is a work of soaring melodies, brooding intensity, and sublime serenity, ending in a blazing finale that leaves the listener breathless.

Curry House
(Address: 10350 S De Anza Blvd. Cupertino, CA 95015)
i've had food from this restaurant branch down in So.Cal, and i liked it. It's Japanese style curry dish.
Look at their menu online, and has pictures, too! Yummy!:)
Let me know if you are coming to dinner on your RSVP. Thanks.

*EXTRA GOODIES for this concert:
Alan one of our members plays cello for the Peninsula Orchestra, and also is a current board member for the organization. So, he invited us to back-stage party/reception afterwards. At this time we sure will be able to meet our performer of the night Mr. Nakamatsu himself and members of orchestra including Alan. Isn't it so cool? Oh, not done yet! There's also a pre-concert lecture around 7?(i will need to confirm with you on this later!). So, some or all of us decided to do this we can all go together. So many good & free stuff for this concert... yes, i am super duper excited about it!!So please join me & other classical music enthusiasts for this great must-see concert event!!

**Note: This meetup will be charging $2 per member. Your pledging fee will help paying for flower bouquet for the performer(s)
