Tomorrow...

Nashville Symphony | Giancarlo Guerrero, conductor | George Li, piano

PROGRAM
Suppé – Poet and Peasant: Overture
Mozart – Piano Concerto No. 24 in C Minor
Dvořák – Symphony No. 8 in G Major

Looks like a nice program, Greg.  I love this Dvořák symphony.

Bang on a Can, live @ Merkin Hall, simulcast by BOAC.

Not sure how much is "classical", though.  ;)

In days of yore I often attended concerts at Merkin Hall...

There are usually some gems in these BOAC concerts. I do recognize a couple of the composers! And Merkin Hall...yes, a wonderful venue, with very clear acoustics!

Funny typo on the BOAC page...they credit Ken Thomson on "clarinet & brass clarinet", but the pic shows him playing a bass clarinet.

But the program looks awesome:

Granted, lots of "jazz", but that's a plus for me.

Aside from the Brahms, this looks like a nice concert. Stravinsky's Dumbarton Oaks has always been a favorite of mine.

If everything goes well, I'm going to see Strauss's Salome for the first time live on 30th of March. However, considering they have already several times cancelled performances because of covid, I won't hold my breath.
