    Symphony Hall concert of US music: Be in Birmingham 2008

    by Galahad Updated Aug 5, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the spring of 2003 Birmingham was attempting to become the European City of Culture in 2008. In the end Liverpool won the competition. As part of the bid it put on a series of concerts, in Symphony Hall, of Charles Ives symphonies accompanied by other US music. We went in March 2003 to one of these concerts. One of the accompanying pieces was a rarely performed Aaron Copland Organ Symphony and some other pieces were 19th century hymn and folk singing. The whole series was broadcast live on BBC Radio 3.

    Symphony Hall: Mendelson's Elijah

    by Galahad Updated Aug 11, 2003

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Go to a concert in Symphony Hall. If classical music is not your scene there are frequently other types of concerts or gigs at Symphony Hall.
    In October 2000 Carol and I went to a concert of Mendelson's Elijah given by the Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra and chorus.

    Dress Code: Casual.
