Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra principal clarinetist Eli Eban will speak as part of the final Meet the Musicians Brown Bag sponsored by the Symphony Partners at 12:15 p.m. today in Smith Wilkes Hall.
Christopher Seaman sat on the front porch of Hagen-Wensley House, sipping a mug of tea.
It was 4 p.m. on a Wednesday afternoon as the British conductor reviewed a well-worn orchestral score — Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 5, the “Emperor” — and enjoyed the mild June weather.
Multiple flight delays the day before had left him feeling jet lagged, but Seaman weathered the stress with good humor as he talked about some upcoming pieces in the Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra season.
