If you’re in New York City and not otherwise occupied, why not attend a wonderful orchestral concert for free?
NYUO2 –one of NYU’s two symphony orchestras–is opening tonight’s concert season at the Frederick Lowe Theater on West 4th Street, just between Washington Square Park and Broadway. The program starts at 8 PM and features the following:
- Overture to La Gazza Ladra, Rossini
- Flute Concerto in D, K. 314, Mozart
- Symphony no. 1 in C, op. 21, Beethoven
I’ll be giving a pre-concert talk starting at 7:30, going to a few minutes before the start.
NYUO1 is giving its opening concert on Monday, at the same time. I’ll be doing the same thing. Music by Berlioz (Roman Carnival), Grieg (piano concerto), and Elgar (“Enigma” Variations).
I hope to see you!
