PARK AVENUE CHAMBER SYMPHONY

 

If there's not a doctor in the house, there will be plenty of lawyers on the stage at this ensemble's winter concert, amateur in the best and oldest sense of the word, "lovers" of music.  Investment bankers and government officials, executives and law clerks are the players in this five-year-old ensemble, which warms up for a benefit concert at Carnegie Hall next Wednesday with a concert that includes the Brahms Fourth as well as Gordon Jacob's Horn Concerto, written for the virtuoso Dennis Brain, performed here by a music therapist who happens to be an experienced soloist, Jennifer Miller.  David Bernard, the group's founder, conducts.  Tonight and tomorrow at 8, St. Jean Baptiste Church, Lexington Avenue at 76th Street, (212) 570-1200. Tickets: $15, $10 for 65+ and students.

 

So my old friend of many decades, now a Wall Street attorney, finally played Carnegie Hall last Wednesday night.  And he took his camera along.

Posters in the Green Room – so while you wait to go onstage you understand where you are and think about who has been there before you.  And you try not to be intimidated.

My friend’s violin – built in 1725 but still quite fine… and the concert went well.
