Classical Music

Some Really Great Upcoming Concerts

So I’ve been hopping in and out of other orchestra sites around the country.  Here are some upcoming performances that I think look really great. What do you think?  Is my love of Classical, Baroque and Early music eras pretty obvious?

I’m already planning to attend this one and a handful of others!
