Toscanini at Music Hall
Sat, 28 Oct 2017

Did you know that one of the most acclaimed conductors of the past century, Arturo Toscanini, conducted a concert at Music Hall in 1943? On the program was Robert Schumann’s Manfred Overture, Johannes Brahms’ Symphony #2, music from Richard Wagner’s Tristan and Isolde, and more.

The Music Hall celebratory concerts wrap up next weekend with the ensemble for whom the hall was originally built – the May Festival Chorus. They will collaborate with the CSO in a program including Bach’s Magnificat, Brahms’ Triumphlied, and a world premiere by Julia Adolphe. Concerts are Saturday at 8pm and Sunday at 2pm.
