Hey there faithful readers! Sorry this is going up so late – been a bit of a hectic work day. I’m sneaking this in while I wait for one of the other online producers to proof some donation forms for me. Good times, no?
We’re baaaaack! The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra 2010-2011 season begins officially this weekend, starting with a concert featuring the season’s theme, Gustav Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahler Mahler. (But say it the first way; it’s more fun.) On Friday, September 24 at 8 pm at the Meyerhoff and Saturday, September 25 at 8 pm at Strathmore you can enjoy Ma(aaaaaaaa)hler’s seventh symphony, along with a Bach suite that Ma(aaaaaaaaaaa)hler arranged (okay, I’ll stop now) which includes the famed “Air on a G String.”
No program notes, but there is a webumentary. Here, let Marin Alsop tell you all about it.
I attended the opening gala performance, and it was bloody amazing. You should go to at least one BSO concert this season. Promise?
