In Saturday’s (7/11) Patriot-Ledger (Quincy, Massachusetts), Keith Powers writes, “ ‘There is a synergy between site and sound,’ says Boston Landmarks Orchestra conductor Charles Ansbacher, ‘and we want locations that are equal in quality to the music. It’s like a good restaurant. You need a location that enhances what you’re doing.’ Ansbacher is not serving food, of course, but great music, which he will be serving, for free, this summer at locations in the Boston area. The BLO concerts will begin Wednesday evening at Boston’s Hatch Shell on the Esplanade, and continue there each week through September. The orchestra will travel to other locations as well, including Quincy’s Beale Estate on July 23, in a concert featuring a 22-year-old rising star of the cello, Jacqueline Choi, who will perform the Haydn C major concerto. This summer marks the third season that BLO has taken on the popular outdoor series, and each year has shown an increase in artistic excellence as well as a branching out to other venues. … In addition to more than a dozen presentations at the Hatch Shell, including a film series, and the Quincy performance, BLO will perform in Jamaica Plain, Dorchester and Roxbury.”
