Say 'hello' to the cello

The pop stops and the orchestra takes the stage as Britt Festivals opens its 47th classical season tonight on the hill in Jacksonville.

Conductor Peter Bay and the Britt Orchestra will be joined in the 8 p.m. concert by cellist Alisa Weilerstein in a performance of "Schelomo — Hebraic Rhapsody for Cello and Orchestra," by Ernest Bloch. Tickets, $10 to $15 for children and $30 to $45 for adults, remain available.

A champagne picnic catered by the Jacksonville Inn precedes the show, and tickets for that are $30.

Details: 773-6077 or 800-882-7488.
