MON 2/20: RSVP for Boston Phil rehearsing in Somerville

The Boston Philharmonic will rehearse here.
Yes, Monday cheapness is on the calendar.


MON 2/20

6:30pm to 9:30pm
Boston Philharmonic, "Concert 3": Open Rehearsal
at Arts at the Armory Performance Hall, 191 Highland Ave, Somerville (Spring Hill)

Let's not kid ourselves. You and I don't know about Witold Lutoslawski.

The Boston Philharmonic is rehearsing Lutoslawski's "Concerto for Cello and Orchestra" which is described as:

Like a play without words it dramatizes the dilemma of the individual trapped in a repressive social system— in this case Soviet-dominated Poland— struggling to find his own voice and make it heard.
Later this week people are going to pay $15 to $90, so you could hear some world-class modern classical music for free.

Perhaps the drawback is that the rehearsal starts promptly at 6:30pm and will last until 9:30pm. The concerto is rather interesting but rather serious.

Oh, and you can't park on-site. (But it's better to take the #88 or #90.)
