Beethoven in Vallejo

The Vallejo Festival Orchestra, founded and conducted by Thomas Conlin, has a concert next Saturday, March 2, 2024, at 7:30 PM. They'll be performing the following all-Beethoven program:
  • Egmonont Overture
  • Coriolanus Overture
  • Prometheus Overture (I presume this is the overture to The Creatures of Prometheus.)
  • Symphony No. 3 in E-flat major, Eroica
I can't get there, alas, but let me remind you that this orchestra and conductor gave a Sibelius program last year that was really terrific. I liked it a whole lot more than what the hallowed Vienna Philharmonic and Christian Thielemann did with Mendelssohn and Brahms that same week. So if you're anywhere near the Empress Theater in Vallejo next Saturday, be there or be square.
