I had at least 3 friends in attendance. I'll have to ask what they thought.

It got a great review in the Chicago tribune. They are also playing this piece on a few stops on a US tour this month.

Ah yes, Carnegie Hall this Friday.  I don't see how I can get down there in time.  New York, Naples, West Palm Beach, and three dates in Philadelphia.  Pretty exciting.  Tuba concerto premiering in Pittsburgh next month.

Going to see them at the Kennedy Center tonight for Brahms 2!  Any idea if they will be performing at this concert?

I assume you've figured out by now that Chicago Symphony did not play the Low Brass Concerto at Kennedy Center.  That's too bad.  If you are up for a minor road trip, Philadelphia will be playing the piece later this month.
