To all you Social Fun classical music lovers who aren't also in Nerd Fun:
I run a series of FREE events at the New England Conservatory for Nerd Fun, and want my Social Fun friends to come too! (But please don't double RSVP.)
Tonight, David Loebel conducts an all Hungarian program, including the works of Dohnányi, Bartok, and Kodály. The Bartok will be a piano concerto, yet to be announced. (Listen to excerpts below; the names in the list link to youtube performances of the works.)
For more information about this concert, go to http://necmusic.edu/nec-philharmonia-loebel-0 .
Let's meet up at no later than 7:30pm, so the group can grab a bunch of seats together when the doors open, and then socialize before the concert. We will sit in left-middle section of the balcony, since this affords a good view of the entire orchestra, (particularly good when a pianist is playing), is open to the ceiling, and is easy to describe and find, and it is relatively easy to grab a large block of seats there.
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. It's also close to the Mass Ave station on the Orange line. Look for the building with the YMCA sign on top of it as you walk down Huntington Ave--it's near that building. The main entrance is reached from Gainsborough Street.
