Thursday, February 21, 6:30 pm – A Night at the Symphony to Benefit the Justine Mee Liff Fund

You’re invited to join The Emerald Necklace Conservancy for a memorable evening with the Boston Symphony Orchestra on Thursday, February 21.
A pre-concert dinner reception will take place at 6:30pm in the Cabot-Cahners Room at Symphony Hall followed by a concert at 8pm with compositions by Stravinsky and Haydn. Veteran BSO conductor Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos joins the BSO for two very different works for orchestra and voices: the complete music from Stravinsky’s 1919 ballet Pulcinella-an early example, reinterpreting Baroque music, of the composer’s neoclassical style, and named for a character from Italian commedia dell’arte-and Haydn’s Mass in Time of War, composed in 1796 during the series of European wars following the French Revolution. These concerts feature the Tanglewood Festival Chorus, three soloists making return appearances at Symphony Hall-Alexandra Coku, Karen Cargill, and Matthew Polenzani-and, in his BSO debut, bass Ildebrando D’Arcangelo. Please RSVP by January 15. Purchase tickets by check or online for $150 & $250. To purchase tickets>>
