Maine things Monday: Portland Symphony Orchestra plays music of Queen
April 30, 2012
We are lucky to have our own symphony orchestra here in Portland. Many people I know attend their performances regularly, but apparently it took their doing the music of Queen to get me to attend! On Saturday night we went out with a few friends to hear the PSO take on Freddie Mercury and company. They are such a talented group and sounded beautiful, but the event was not exactly what we expected; for instance, there was a singer. Who invited audience participation. Who encouraged my seat-neighbors to belt out notes they couldn’t quite hit. The University of Southern Maine Choir joined in, too, and they helped round out the vocals. Here’s a snippet:
We had fun getting out and about with friends, and it made us both want to go back for a “real” PSO performance!
