The Who will rock to town as a highlight of an incredibly musical week that includes a symphony, an international event, Ed Sheeran, jazz, and even a festival for people who play the saw. There are also opportunities to enjoy Latin dance, European films, walking tours, and fly fishing. Here’s the rundown.
Broadway is coming home. On May 31st, the Astoria Symphonic Choir performs at Astoria’s Trinity Lutheran Church, which is located a block from the roadway that stretches from Elmhurst to the LIC’s Socrates Sculpture Park and is called “Broadway.” Artistic Director Adam Eggleston leads the group through selections from musicals — My Fair Lady, Guys & Dolls, The Sound of Music, Fiddler on the Roof, Damn Yankees, Anything Goes, and West Side Story. Plus, there will be some extra excitement in the air as the choir’s sister group, the Astoria Symphony Orchestra, has just announced that Maestro David Štech, who has been the resident conductor since 2011, will be the music director for the twelfth concert season (2014-15).
