Join us for the last FREE classical music concert at the New England Conservatory of Music this semester!

Tonight, you can watch this year's conducting students perform 3 works by master composers: Mozart's "Haffner" symphony, Copland's Appalachian Spring Suite, and Mendelssohn's Scottish Symphony.

The lab orchestra is an all volunteer orchestra whose mission is to assist in the training of the graduate students in the art of conducting. Watch maestro Hugh Wollf describe this very selective program and see past graduate Aram Demerjian discuss his experience => here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8tSpPzwsE8Q).

WARNING: The lab orchestra concerts are held in a MUCH smaller venue, and have limited seating, and if you get there late, you may not get a seat! So let's meet up at 7:30pm, so the group has a chance to get good seats and socialize before the concert. Brown hall is a drawing room of sorts, down in the basement of the building, with stack chairs vs. those in Jordan Hall; if you will find it hard to sit for an hour or more in such seats, consider bringing a cushion or something soft to add padding! From the main entrance, turn right in the lobby, and follow the hallway around and to the left; continue straight until you reach the stairs, then go downstairs and follow the signs to Brown Hall.

Directions to Jordan Hall:

The hall is located at the corner of Huntington and Gainsborough streets (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=jordan+Hall,+Boston+MA&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=59.467068,135.263672&ie=UTF8&ll=42.342781,-71.085577&spn=0.006883,0.020599&z=17), about a block south of the Symphony T stop on the Green Line. Look for the building with the YMCA sign on top of it--it's near that building. The main entrance is reached from Gainsborough Street.

This evening's program will include:
