Landmarks Guest Spotlight: The Boston Civic Symphony

August 1, 2012

This week, the Boston Civic Symphony will be a guest of the 2012 Landmarks Festival at the Shell. The Boston Civic Symphony is one of the city’s most respected musical institutions. Founded in 1924, it is also the second-oldest symphony orchestra in the Boston area.

We will welcome the Boston Civic Symphony and their conductor, Max Hobart, to the Hatch Shell tonight at 7 P.M. The concert will feature a classical program with a special twist. In 1941, Leonard Bernstein performed his first-ever concert on the Esplanade. Tonight’s show will be a re-enactment of this historic moment in Boston’s cultural past. The program includes: “Jupiter” from The Planets by Holst, Lalo’s Symphonie espagnole and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7.

The Boston Civic Symphony’s show will also feature a twelve year old violin soloist during its performance. Ilana Zaks is a talented young performer who will grace the stage tonight. It is a moment that should not be missed!

We hope to see you at the Hatch Shell tonight!
