All Hallow’s Eve Eve

If you want the BSO to serenade you this week, it will happen on October 30 in Frederick OR IT WON’T HAPPEN AT ALL.

11 am at Frederick (I think): Lemony Snicket’s The Composer is Dead. I’ve never read A Series of Unfortunate Events nor do I care to (I’ve had enough of Edith Wharton-style depression, thank you; House of Mirth my tiny foot). However, this is apparently a dead composer mystery intended for kids, and I DID like The Westing Game. Oh, and there’s a costume contest (go as Schroeder!).

8 pm at Frederick: Brahm’s Double Concerto. Beethoven (yay!), Mozart (boooo), and Brahms (meh). Whatever you’re into. But it’s an excellent opportunity to get to know the musical stylings of individual BSO musicians — lots of solos going down here, and concertmaster Jonathan Carney leads. Personally I find him too emotive in a flaily sort of way, but he’s definitely good.

And who knows? Maybe there’ll be candy.


About Jenn

Despite being the former digital marketing intern at the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Jenn German does not like Mozart. Beethoven could've totally beaten him up. Also she has an arts management graduate degree from American University, but this changes nothing.
