Boston Symphony Opening Night - 9/24

9/23/2008 12:01:00 AM
It's getting a bit chilly out nowadays, which is always unfortunate. But there's always one great thing about the coming of Fall - Opening Night for the Boston Symphony which is coming up this Wednesday - 9/24.

Under the baton of BSO Music Director James Levine, the Boston Symphony Orchestra opens its 2008-09 season with an all-Russian gala concert at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, September 24, at Symphony Hall. Latvian soprano Maija Kovalevska, a rising star in the international classical music scene, makes her BSO debut singing the “Letter Scene” from Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin in a program that also includes such Russian orchestral masterpieces as the Overture to Glinka’s Ruslan and Ludmila and Ravel’s orchestration of Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition.

Many thanks to Kathleen for the invitation to attend this event. I'm psyched because I was just thinking about looking for tix to the BSO as I sat on my twelve hour flight back from Tokyo to Detroit (just 1 of the 3 flights it took to get home) - while listening to my favorite Yo Yo Ma CD - the one where he plays the music of Ennio Morricone - best classical cd ever. I'll see you Wednesday!

And for those of you reading who'd like to go:

There are a limited number of $20 rush tickets available on Wednesday beginning at 4pm at the Symphony Hall box office.

PS. Did I mention I used to play the piano and cello - and so I love the symphony?
