Summer Arts Preview: Pops and Duxbury Music Festival highlight classical music event

Boston Pops and Duxbury Music Festival are among the highlights of this summer's classical music events.

The Patriot Ledger - Every year at about this time, classical music lovers in numerous major American cities lament that so many local organizations' classical series go into a kind of summer hibernation, having run from fall to spring. Happily, in Boston and out in the Berkshires, there are both the Boston Pops and the Boston Symphony Orchestra putting on a wealth of concerts. And local promoters haven't forgotten that the classics of classical – along with a new piece of music now and then – will always draw a crowd. Here's a selection of all sorts of classical music being presented in and around the city over the next few months.

There's so much to choose from at the Boston Early Music Festival, running June 7-14, and taking place at both the Boston University Theater and Jordan Hall, there's no way around it but to stick with a few highlights. Works by Monteverdi include "L'Incoronazione di Poppea," "Ulisse," "Orfeo," and a program titled "Vespers of 1610." There's also a concert of "Dancing in the Isles" by Musica Pacifica, doing traditional music from the British Isles, and pieces by Purcell, Byrd, Locke, and others. Read more...
