Season Ticket is for lovers of classical music. Whether you are a music connoisseur or simply enjoy a bit of Mozart now and then, this site is for you.
In this blog, I will let you, the reader, know who is performing what, when and where. There are more than 1,800 symphony, chamber, collegiate and youth orchestras across the country (according to the League of American Orchestras), so I will do my best to keep up with as many performers, orchestras and dates as humanly possible.
Although I am pleased to share with you the notable performances I personally attend, the posts are not designed to give a review (favorable or otherwise) of the concert or performers. The intent of my concert highlights is to share the experience with you and, hopefully, entice you to attend a concert, especially if you have never attended or have not attended in awhile.
I try to link the live music with the soloists featured in each post, but this is not always possible if the piece is not readily available through my music sources. The purpose of the live music links is to familiarize you with the piece. Most albums can be purchased through Amazon.com, via the linked sources or through the soloist’s Web site.
Comments are welcome. In particular, if you have a symphony experience to share, a performance worth noting, or a composer worth discussing (aren’t they all?), then by all means, tell us.
Unless otherwise noted, most of my sources include biographies and program notes, and I typically consult several of these for each post to bring you the most accurate information I have available.
