Get Your Doom ‘n’ Gloom on with the University Symphony

Prokofiev! Like music? Enjoy darkness and anguish? How about celestas [1]? If you answered, “Hells yes!” to any of the above (and even if you didn’t) you should support Berkeley’s music department by getting your depressed pre-Valentine’s Day hind parts to Hertz Hall this Friday or Saturday night at 8 to hear the University Symphony Orchestra pick some tunes that’ll be right up your alley.

According to Department of Music calendar [2], the Maestro David Milnes-helmed symphony will “kick off the Spring 2010 season with a collection of powerful, dark works.” As if the program–which includes Brahms’ “Tragic Overture” and something from Wagner’s “Tristan and Isolde” (the happiest opera of all time)–weren’t a dead giveaway.

And if you still need more convincing, just remember that as a student, your $5 tickets are literally one-third the price of general admission. Can you say, “MERE PITTANCE?!” Of course you can.
