Letter: Concert rescheduled
When the Granite State Symphony Orchestra learned on Friday afternoon that its scheduled “Baroque is Back” concert on Saturday evening at the Audi would be severely hampered by street closures in the immediate vicinity, an amazing effort was launched to notify hundreds of concertgoers of the need to reschedule so as not to hinder their ability to park and attend the orchestra’s latest effort.
Within hours the concert was rescheduled for Jan. 26, and through a united effort by the symphony’s board members with help from the Concord Police and Recreation and Parks departments, the media, the Friends of the Audi, David Murdo and Carol Bagan, the task was nearly complete.
Special thanks to Maestro Robert Babb, his wife Jen-Alice, and our board president, Alan Jesseman, who joined me in braving the chilly and eerily quiet Prince Street on Saturday evening to personally greet the dozen or so ticket-holders who’d not heard of the change.
It’s another great example of how teamwork can turn a situation around. While the music of the GSSO may not have filled the Audi, the effort of many was right in tune.
