We were told that yesterday’s Cape Ann Symphony’s 65th Anniversary Season concert “Romantic Masters” was the orchestra’s most sold out March concert, ever. Great job, Heidi Dallin, on promotion!
My son spotted Heidi’s name in the playbill and Yellow Sub, along with many other local names and arts supporters. It takes a village.
By the way– kids tickets are $5 at these concerts. Area schools benefit from Cape Ann Symphony performance outreach.
Cape Ann Symphony’s next concert is: SCANDINAVIAN SPECTACULAR Saturday, March 20, 2017 8PM
Before setting off into the next piece, Musical Director & Conductor Yoichi Udagawa breaks down a mini music lesson excerpt with the orchestra. He has a signature foot lift when he conducts.
Here’s a snippet of glorious music. Can you name that tune?
Don’t freak out — at least, not yet. You can still get tickets for Saturday’s Cape Ann Symphony Concert right here. You can also still get tickets for the reception on Sunday. Get Reception Tickets here. For all of you who really wanted to go to the Sunday concert but thought you could get tickets at the door, stop you’re bellyaching and just be grateful that you live in a community with a vibrant, growing cultural economy. Oh, and next time you see a GMG post about a concert you might want to go to (like this post), get your tickets RIGHT THEN! We ALWAYS put a link to tickets — always (see above for 2 examples).
This just in from Heidi Dallin:
