Today's side deal helps ease your ears into the stereophonic stew of springtime: for $14, you get one adult or child's ticket to the Spring Classical Concert by the Neponset Valley Philharmonic Orchestra (up to a $30 value). The concert will be held at 3 p.m. on March 21 at King Philip Regional High School in Wrentham, located 35 miles southwest of Boston by motorized tympani drum.
Four classical works are on the playlist for the Spring Classical Concert: Fanfare for the New Millennium for brass ensemble by Kevin Kaska; Intermezzo for string ensemble by Franz Schreker; Concierto de Aranjuez by Joaquin Rodrigo, featuring acclaimed soloist Robert Belinić; and Symphony No. 9 (From the New World) by Antonin Dvorák.
Founded in 2007, the Neponset Valley Philharmonic Orchestra, led by conductor Lawrence Isaacson, performs four full orchestral concerts each season. Concerts by the Neponset Valley Philharmonic Orchestra make for flawless family outings—in addition to hearing seminal pieces of music, children can also learn the difference between cornets, concertos, and leopard seals.
The Boston Globe has featured the Neponset Valley Philharmonic, noting the impressive credentials of music director Lawrence Isaacson, and Betsy's View offers this rave review of the orchestra's inaugural concert in 2008:
- The Mozart was short and lively, the Mendelssohn was emotional and beautifully played, and the Beethoven was familiar and warming. Each was an appropriate selection for this inaugural performance as the audience found comfort recognizing these well-known, classic pieces. With more than 400 guests in attendance at the NVPO’s premier performance, the mood was joyful and energetic, and the one question I heard repeatedly throughout the afternoon was, “when is the next performance?” – Betsy Hijazi, Betsy's View
