A Summary of Some Summer Concerts

While I’m sorting out stuff for a setting of “The Lazy Poet” (which is taking far too much work), I’ve been blogging elsewhere about summer concerts:

This weekend, the Harrisburg Symphony will be performing five free concerts around the area (Lemoyne, Harrisburg, Annville, Carlisle & McAlisterville). You can read the post at Dr. Dick’s Harrisburg Symphony Blog.

Though the weather is fine – F-I-N-E – this morning, the forecast for this evening is a bit iffy with a chance of showers and possible thunderstorms before 11pm: if you’re wondering about tonight’s Negley Park concert, in case of rain it will be held indoors at the Washington Heights Elementary School on Lemoyne’s Walnut Street just a few blocks away – a weather up-date will be posted on the Harrisburg Symphony’s website if the location will be moved.

The story behind Philip Glass’s Violin Sonata made the Wall Street Journal today – you can find a link to the article in a post over at Dr. Dick’s Market Square Concerts Blog, with some links to past posts about the world premiere in Harrisburg at Market Square Concerts this past February.

Market Square Concerts is gearing up for Summer Music 2009 in three weeks – there are some details about its three concerts as well as a tease for the new 2009-2010 season, here.

And now, back to writing romantic arpeggios and sleepy triads to inspire “The Lazy Poet.”
