Maestro Jeffrey Tate conducts the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra with seasoned skill, honed during a career that has put him in front of some of the world’s most renowned orchestras. The program kicks off with Ralph Vaughan Williams’ Wasp Overture, based on Aristophanes’s The Wasps, which recounts his experience of mistaking a wasp nest for his pillow. Israeli violinist Guy Braunstein coaxes a masterful rendition of Brahms’s Violin Concerto out of reverberating strings before the ensemble closes out the evening with Dvořák’s Symphony no. 7, inspired by Czech folk tunes.
The sonic professionals ramp up for their crescendos inside Mechanics Hall—a 19th-century building known for its supreme acoustics and frequent Elvis sightings. During bouts of thunderous applause, audience members can marvel at the Renaissance Revival–style details of the theater, adorned with ornate touches such as three-tiered chandeliers and Corinthian columns.
Though Music Worcester offers discounts for students, today’s Groupon still offers the best deal for most customers.
