Brian writes, "HSO Music Director, Carolyn Kuan, has programmed Mackey’s Harvest Concerto, happening in Hartford this week from Thursday, May 28 through Sunday, May 31. I’m having a blast preparing this work and looking forward to performing it with the Hartford Symphony. Mackey’s music is very popular these days, and this work is no exception- it’s a wonderful piece for trombone and winds and percussion. The program also includes Mahler's 4th Symphony, Fanfare for the Common Man, and a new fanfare. Student tickets are $10 with an ID."
