Weekend Concert Calendar, 7/24/08

It has been a long week, featuring, among other things, me moving. So, you are going to get a particularly brusque calendar.

First of all, stop the presses! Chanticleer is coming to town! Well, to the state, at least. They will be at Tanglewood on Thursday, July 31 (one week from today.) Curses...I can't make it. But you should go!

On Saturday the Berkshire Choral Festival is performing Handel's Solomon at 8 pm in Sheffield, MA, if you are out that way.

On Sunday the Boston Landmarks Orchestra is doing a Neighborhood Concert in Dorchester Park. It's at 6:30 pm, and they'll be doing Gershwin and gospel. More info here.

Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, don't forget about the Boston Opera Collaborative's production of Mozart's The Magic Flute.

    Allegra, have you been reading or hearing anything from the World Symposium on Choral Music in Copenhagen? ( I just caught the end of some amazing Norwegian songs on Performance Today. ( It seems like something you might be interested in.
