Boston Cancels Beethoven

The Boston Symphony was to play all-Berthoven concert tonight not far from bomb blasts and, of course, called it off.  Here's movement from one of the pieces to be played, one of greatest anyone ever wrote and perhaps comforting to some.

Two art museums in the City opened their doors to all free of charge today (Tuesday). Musical programming interests can't quite do that (planning, rehearsals, etc) but such entities as the Arlington Street Church (home of the hebdomadal Bach Cantatas, and the New England Conservatory perhaps could offer a free concert of uplifing music everyone could enjoy. (LvB's "Mass in C"; Schubert's Mass in E-Flat; Mozart's "Ave Verum Corpus"; orchestral works by the aforementioned and also Dvorak, Bizet (his youthful Symphony in C); for all I know, something like that could be in the planning stages now.
