Music brings people together. This was never more true than when the CSO embarked on the inaugural One City, One Symphony program this past year, capturing the imagination of thousands from throughout the region through listening parties, concerts, live video feeds, digital downloads, and radio and television broadcasts.
The Library is once again proud to partner with the CSO to present One City, One Symphony in the fall of 2013, this time exploring love, fate and redemption in the dramatically vivid Symphony No. 4 by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky, a timeless, lushly romantic musical tapestry riddled with raw emotion. We’ll discover or rediscover these masterpieces together as a community, building upon our understanding of the music through a remarkable shared experience. The event culminates in live performances of Tchaikovsky’s lushly romantic Symphony No. 4 on November 14 and 16 at Music Hall.How can you participate? Place your hold or visit your local library location and check out a copy of Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4. Take part in one of the CSO’s many listening parties this fall, including one at the Main Library on October 23 at 7:00 p.m., or download the listening guide and host your own party.
