Within hours of posting my review I received email from the Senior Manager, Front of House Operations at the Bushnell Center. She offered an appology which I certainly accepted. The next morning she followed up, letting me know that she had reviewed thier policy and procedures with her team to ensure that what I experienced would not happened again. I am very impressed. Kudo’s to the Bushnell Center and the Hartford Symphony for their response!
In May 2009, I had the opportunity to play the Carmina Burana at Woolsey Hall conducted by my future girlfriend :) Her choir and soloists were wonderful. It’s such a great piece and from an orchestrator/arranger’s viewpoint, I picked up a few things from Carl Orff’s score that came in handy when I was writing the orchestrations for the ”Rock n Roll over Beethoven” project . We are really looking forward to the HSO’s performance of Carmina Burana in June. Even better for me is knowing that I shouldn’t have any more seating hassles!!
