Re: “Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra

Couldn't agree more. The woodwinds perfectly captured the spirit of the piece, especially in their interaction with the strings in the second movement. It's almost like calling to someone you can't see and hearing them faintly and hesitantly call back. The finale was outstanding - fast, loud, tight, and powerful - exactly as it should be! I walked out of that hall with way too much energy for a weeknight.

Re: “Fine-tuning the delivery

As someone who does not often attend, I think it's a great idea to include the concerts with modern content like Star Wars, Pixar, etc. We once took all our kids and drove to Cleveland to hear the Orchestra perform the score from The Lord of the Rings. I would also be enthusiastic to attend concerts featuring popular young musicians/multi-instrumentalists such as Chris Thile, Ben Solee, Andrew Bird, The Punch Brothers. They would certainly draw a whole other world of listeners to the performances. Exploring ways to get young people to consider attending performances by an orchestra seems to be very important if the traditional symphony is to survive.

Re: “RPO announces new music director

__"new music director" "new position" "new and vibrant" "new and exciting ways"__
"New" yes but lest not forget that a world class orchestra to be successful blends the new with the old. Too much new too quickly can lead to turmoil and trouble for director and orchestra. I think a case in point can be made for the recent RPO season of troubles.

Anyway here's to successful for Stare and the RPO!

Re: “Silver bells, decked halls, and more

I enjoyed reading this article, and I enjoy reading Paloma Capanna in City. However, I do have to offer a correction. I saw Handel's Messiah performed on Saturday, December 1, at the Evangelical Lutheran Church of the Reformation on Chestnut Street.
