The part that dealt with music from India was fun and interesting. The piece by a young, new composer a nice idea, particularly since the composer was a young woman which made it even more modern and appealing. Unfortunately, the concert went on about 20 to 30 minutes too long as it began to get hot and folks began squirming and trickling out of the auditorium. The initial enjoyment began to dive into restless exhaustion. It would have worked better to cut out one of the pieces: perhaps the Beethoven piece which was nice but had no relationship (that was made apparent, at least) to the India theme. It just did not work to try to squeeze that extra number in on this particular night. If the concert had not gone on too long it would have been more enjoyable. I was exhausted by the time the concert ended which did not make for a good final impression. For this single reason, I would be hesitant to attend another symphony performance short of some very tempting incentives. Thanks.

There will be a pre-concert talk by John Kendall Bailey and Juhi Bansal at 7:00pm.
