Concert Roundup (Really)

Wanna hear something crazy? There’s actually a concert you can attend this week! Yes! The National Symphony Orchestra is here and it wants to help. On December 31, no less, as your New Year’s celebration. The lineup for this one is ridiculous. Let me take a deep breath now:

  • Enesco
  • Sousa
  • Rossini
  • Falla
  • Rodrigo
  • Bernstein
  • Strauss (the younger) (so it says on the website) (it makes me giggle)
  • Mascagni (remember this?)
  • Tchaikovsky
  • Strauss (the elder) (tee)
  • Elgar

And then you’ll take a cup of kindness yet for auld lang syne. Or however it goes. And then there’s a party afterward with swing dancing! [ See it! ]

Or, if you prefer your music to be of the more interactive persuasion, you can play it yourself. Of course, you’ll have to wait till summer, but preparation should begin now — the BSO Academy is currently accepting applications. Get your application in before February first and spend of a week’s worth of your summer learning how to play your instrument from members of the BSO themselves, followed by a concert featuring you!
