HGC Broomball on Fountain Square
To February 16
2013 marks the seventh season of HGC Construction Broomball on Fountain Square. Teams play under the lights on the Fountain Square ice rink in the heart of downtown, complete with live game coverage, announcers, and scores on the giant video board. Broomball combines elements of soccer and hockey. Players wear gym shoes, not skates, and use sticks with a small, broom-shaped head to pass the ball and score goals. Live announcers call each game – with much humor, of course – and the Fountain Square video board becomes a giant TV with a scoreboard, time clock, and live camera coverage. http://www.myfountainsquare.com

Paavo Järvi conductor
Stewart Goodyear piano
Paavo Järvi returns to Music Hall for the first time since receiving his final cheers as CSO Music Director in sold-out concerts in May 2011. Brahms’ revered Second Symphony, often described as the happiest of the composer’s symphonies, is the perfect showcase for the energizing artistry of Järvi with your orchestra. A favorite of CSO audiences, pianist Stewart Goodyear returns to perform a vividly imagined concerto whose shimmering colors, lush harmonies and technical fireworks place Lutoslawski’s music squarely among the masters.
