Free dress rehearsal by Peabody Symphony Orchestra Friday
The Peabody Symphony Orchestra was scheduled to perform a program of Mahler, Schwantner and more Saturday night. That event, like so many others, has now been canceled in anticipation of the meteorological horror due any minute now. However, there's a silver lining in this case.
The orchestra will open its final rehearsal free to the public Friday afternoon (UPDATE: that's the 12th) at 2:30, when two of the works from the program will be played: Mahler’s Symphony No. 4 and "...durch den Tod zu Gott gekommen..." by Joshua William Mills, the winning work in the Macht Orchestral Composition Competition. (Schwantner’s "Chasing Light..." will be moved to a Peabody Symphony concert on Feb. 27.)
If you have tickets to Saturday's canceled performance, refunds or exchanges can be made through the box office: 410-234-4800.
