It’s time for Beethoven tomorrow (SAT) with The Cape Ann Symphony Mother’s Day Concert feat. BSO Soloists

Past_PresentLast month (in this post) I pointed to the roots of today’s music.

And a few weeks ago (in this post) you saw the 2nd movement of Beethoven’s 7th Symphony used in Academy-Award winning film, The King’s Speech.

So to help you get ready for tomorrow night’s powerful Cape Ann Symphony concert (Get tickets here), I’ve put a few other films and videos using this iconic music at the end of this post.

In addition to Beethoven, they’ve invited Boston Symphony Orchestra father and daughter team Richard and Erin Svoboda as soloists for Michael Gandolfi’s Double Concerto for Clarinet and Bassoon.  Plus you’ll hear an overture by Rossini, the most popular opera composer of his time.

You really do want to be there!  Get tickets here.

Want to learn the concert business? Maybe we have a job for you.

GIMMELIVE IS HIRING

Vickie and I are looking for someone who wants to learn the concert business and is willing to work at it with determined dedication. We’re a very small company. Everybody does everything, from booking to promotion to customer support to data entry to house and stage management to washing towels and shopping for the artists’ back-stage goodies. So will you.

This is not an easy job. Hours vary from week to week. Priorities can change suddenly without warning. No matter how much you prepare, the unexpected always happens. And sometimes it all seems to be going terribly wrong.

If you are an excellent communicator, great with people, thrive on challenge, love to learn, love music, embrace the unknown and can find clever ways to get stuff done with almost no supervision, this could be the job for you. It’s not an internship. You’ll get paid.

Watch our video (below) and get a taste of what it’s like to put on an outdoor concert (most of our shows are not outdoors, but it’s the only video we have that shows some of the work we do behind the scenes).

CLICK HERE. Check the box that says, “I want to be on your Street Team” (Oh, did we say you’ll be managing a street team too?) and tell us why you want to learn the concert business. We’ll get back to you.

SELL OUT ALERT: The Smithereens at Larcom on Saturday — Get $25 tix now before they’re gone

As promised, we’re letting you know before all the tickets are gone for New Jersey-based, power-pop rockers, The Smithereens on Saturday right down the road at Beverly’s Larcom Theatre.  You can still get tickets here (starting at only $25 — half of what you’d have to pay elsewhere) and there are even a few of my favorite seats left in Balcony Center Row L (get them here).

The cool thing about these guys is that even though they had monster hits in the ’80s (e.g., “Behind the Wall of Sleep,” “A Girl like You,” “Blood And Roses,” “Only a Memory,” “Blues Before and After”) which they could easily just live off, they’re still writing new songs and releasing new records that are as good or better than their classics.  Check out this Video of their new song, “Sorry.”

Cape Ann Symphony Mother’s Day Concert Saturday, May 9 feat. BSO Soloists

Last month (in this post) I pointed to the roots of today’s music.  This month, the Cape Ann Symphony takes the whole thing one step farther.  First of all, they’re playing one of Beethoven’s most extraordinary compositions, the 7th symphony.  My guess is that the audience will jump to their feet after this finale just as they did last month for Beethoven’s first piano concerto, featuring David Deveau.

Beethoven’s 7th has been used in a number of films, most recently the 2nd movement in a tremendously powerful scene in which Academy Award winner Colin Firth as King George VI delivers a triumphant speech after struggling all his life with a terrible stutter.  Check out that scene in this video:

Now imagine hearing the whole symphony live.

And if that wasn’t enough, they’ve invited Boston Symphony Orchestra father and daughter team Richard and Erin Svoboda as soloists for Michael Gandolfi’s Double Concerto for Clarinet and Bassoon.  Plus you’ll hear an overture by Rossini, the most popular opera composer of his time.  You really do want to be there!  Get tickets here.
