Mayor Wu’s Boston Symphony Orchestra Performance

How do you get to Symphony Hall? If you’re Boston Mayor Michelle Wu, the answer is the same as the old Carnegie joke: practice, practice, practice. A classical pianist who began taking lessons as a child and keeps an upright in her City Hall office, Wu commanded center stage at the BSO’s free “Concert for the City” in May, elegantly performing Mozart like no Boston public official in history.
