Apologies for completely forgetting to give you a weekend concert calendar last weekend. I feel particularly bad because there were some good concerts going on - for one thing, Anthology was singing, and for another thing, Exsultemus had some particularly fascinating concerts last weekend as well.
But it's a new week now! With new exciting things. Here they are.
At 1:30 pm, the BSO, with the Tanglewood Festival Chorus, will present Carl Orff's Carmina Burana. This will be at Symphony Hall in downtown Boston. They are also presenting this concert on Saturday night, but that show is already sold out. To get tickets for Friday afternoon, click here.
