CSO invites you to get intimate after Valentine’s Day
Want to get intimate this weekend with a bunch of people who really know how to use their instruments? The Cambridge Symphony Orchestra Chamber Players head across the river Friday for a post-Valentine’s Day event that’s about as intimate as you can get with Bach, Haydn, Mozart and Puccini – and with soprano Kimberly Moller.
Called “Love Is in the Aire” the salon benefit is to celebrate the power of love as well as to support the orchestra, which has a mission of presenting free outreach concerts for audiences who might not otherwise hear live classical music, as well as reasonably priced concerts for the general public.
Cynthia Woods, music director for the chamber players and the wider, 80-plus-person orchestra, said selections Friday are to include the “Brandenburg Concerto No. 1 in F major” by Johann Sebastian Bach; “Concerto for Two Horns in E-flat” by Joseph Haydn; and “Exsultate Jubilate,” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Moller, the soprano taking on these pieces, is a recent graduate of Boston University’s Master of Music program in Vocal Performance recently praised by the Boston Musical Intelligencer for her “bright, focused voice” and flawless execution.
“Love Is in the Aire” is at 8 p.m. Friday in the 40 Berkeley Living Room, 40 Berkeley St., Boston.
Seating is limited. Tickets are $25 online. There is a cash bar, and cocktail attire is suggested.
