Is Monday morning too soon to be thinking about what you’ll be doing on Saturday night?
The Huntington Symphony doesn’t think so – this morning in my inbox, I found an invitation to their next Picnic with the Pops concert. Details about the concert are here.
Randall Reid-Smith and Marina Jurica will be singing with the Huntington Symphony starting at 8pm, and if you show up early, you’ll be treated to a set by the Huntington Harmonica Club starting at 6:30pm.
For entertainment even earlier in the day, you can check out the West Virginia State Harmonica Competition at 2 pm in Pullman Square, sponsored by the Harmonica Club as part of the WV Hot Dog Festival.
I’m going to make the trip from Charleston for the concert, and I hope to get there early enough to catch some harmonica playing and a taste of one of our state's culinary specialties.
Otherwise, it seems to be pretty quiet for the next few weeks in terms of classical concerts. I’m putting together a calendar listing for the Fall to help me keep track of what’s going on and to share it with Classically Speaking readers. Email me if you have any classical concerts you want to let people know about.
