Bonus! I received this email from a nice lady at Classical Music Broadcast:
I read your blog regularly, and thought you might be interested in this live video webcast we are doing on Tuesday. The maestro is combining 2 orchestras for a 92-chair violin section and a total of 141 musicians for Mahler’s 6th Symphony.
It is free to watch – would you be interested in maybe live blogging it or at least giving us some props on Ain’t Baroque?
Count me in! I may do some live-tweeting of the concert, but only if I feel I have something helpful to say — “They sound really good!” gets repetitive after awhile, y’know?
The concert, which combines the University Symphony Orchestra and University Philharmonia Orchestra, will be conducted by Kenneth Kiesler, director of orchestras at the University of Michigan, and kicks off at 8 pm ET. You can access the live broadcast here.
