My first concert with the Masterworks Chorale is a month away---and I'd love if some of you could come! It's Friday evening, November 5, at 8 PM at the Saunders Theatre at Harvard. It's a gorgeous hall, and the program is Handel's "Alexander's Feast".(1) We have the Treble Chorus of New England (a children's chorus) singing with us for part of the program, which should be fun, and I have been promised that the soloists are excellent.

I get a $3 discount on tickets, making them $17, $27 or $39.(2) You can also buy subscriptions for two or all three of this season's concerts at the webpage

Let me know if you'd like to come(3)! It's going to be a great concert!

(1)If you're not familiar with "Alexander's Feast", and I wasn't, Handel wrote it a few years before the Messiah... and it shows. Lots of very Messiah-like passages, but shorter. wikipedia says "The work describes a banquet held by Alexander the Great and his mistress Thaïs in the captured Persian city of Persepolis, during which the musician Timotheus sings and plays his lyre, arousing various moods in Alexander until he is finally incited to burn the city down in revenge for his dead Greek soldiers." but it is also an ode to Saint Cecelia, the patroness saint of musicians.

(2) I have PDFs of which seats are which prices, if you are interested, but in general the orchestra and mezzanine, and the first 3 rows in the three center sections of the balcony are the expensive tickets, the edges of the mezzanine and most of the balcony are $27 tickets, and the obstructed view and far-edge seats are the cheap ones.

(3)Also let me know if you can recommend a babysitter for that Friday night... I doubt Emi is up for a concert that starts at her bedtime.
