Let's have an awesome catch up at the MSO's Sidney Myer free concert! We may end up on either the grass or in seats.
This one is themed 'Summer Nights in Budapest'
Their description is:
"Joshua Weilerstein: conductor
Dale Barltrop: violin
Barber Violin Concerto
Tchaikovsky Symphony No.5
In his second Sidney Myer Free Concert, Joshua Weilerstein conducts more Dvořák and Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No.5. These flank the Violin Concerto by Samuel Barber, with soloist, MSO Concertmaster Dale Barltrop. Barber’s lyrical and (dare we say?) romantic concerto is embedded in the modern repertoire, but was not always thus. In 1940, as Barber was struggling with the score, renowned violin teacher Albert Meiff called it ‘far from the requirements of a modern violinist’ and that the score ‘required surgical operation by a specialist’, offering to wield the scalpel himself. Fortunately, Barber ignored this gratuitous offer."
I'll arrive early and get a spot, and post a description of the location when I arrive, and you can call to make it easier to find us. The concert starts at 7, but I recommend arriving early to get in and find the group, particularly on white night. Afterwards we may join the happy fun vegans white night group.
