Don't Fix It

This is not “Italian” Symphony weather

It’s May FLOWERS, Mother Nature, May FLOWERS. April showers were last month. Try to get it right.

Whatever. It’s gray and rainy and colder than it has any right to be this far into spring and I raise objections. Maybe this week’s BSO concert can cheer me up.

Let’s see… “Mendelssohn and Mahler.” Mendelssohn’s “Italian” Symphony — why, yes, that’ll do very nicely! There are those of you who will dub it overplayed fluff, and you are the people who will never be invited to my parties, ever. Is Mahler’s Das Lied von Der Erde earthy enough for you? (Ha! See what I did there?)

I don’t know, guys. My brain’s a bit off. Um… “Italian” Symphony = good. Go see it. At the Meyerhoff on Friday, May 6 at 8 pm, at Strathmore on Saturday, May 7 at 8 pm, and then again at the Meyerhoff on Sunday, May 8 at 3 pm.

Oh, also — the annual Decorators’ Show House is up and running May 7 through 30, with ticket sales benefiting the BSO. It’s taking place in the Symphonic Suites right by the Meyerhoff, where I would be living if I had the giant sums of cash that I ought to have. The apartments have been decorated by local artisans and everything you see can be purchased. Check the web page for hours of operation and more information. Just as an idle question, is this a BSO-unique thing, or does it happen at orchestras all over? Kthxbai.


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.
