Duke Symphony Orchestra - Dec 5th

This time I'm going to give all of you way more than 24 hours notice about the next Duke Symphony Orchestra performance, which will be next Wednesday, December 5th , at 8 PM, in Baldwin Auditorium. It is free and open to the public.

Saint-Saëns: Danse Macabre
Fauré: Pavane, Op. 50
Debussy: Danses Sacrée et Profane (Laura Byrne, harpist)
Berlioz: Symphonie Fantastique

The Symphonie Fantastique, in particular, is a marvelous piece and I'm overjoyed to get a chance to hear it live. Again, I think this is an excellent opportunity to expose your kids to live classical music.


  1. Zut!! Wish I was closer.

  2. Will they be serving French Fries and French Roast Coffee?

    When I was an undergrad at Brown, my fencing coach came into the gym one afternoon with a challenge: "Name three 19th century French composers. Whose last name begins with the letter 'B'". We used Nadia Boulanger for the third, though no one was really sure if she started composing before the 20th century.

    Lenore -- this looks like a great concert. I'll try to go.

  3. Great! I hope to see you there!
