A great New Year’s resolution is making more time for music. So take note and mark your calendar. The Seattle Symphony will perform a free community concert at City Hall, 12:30 p.m., Wednesday, Jan. 25. Ludovic Morlot, the symphony’s new music director, will lead the orchestra in a program featuring Weber’s Overture to Der Freischütz and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7. Mayor Mike McGinn will welcome the symphony and concert attendees to City Hall.

After the hour-long concert, attend a post-performance reception in City Hall’s Bertha Knight Landes Room, where Morlot will share programming highlights from the symphony’s upcoming 2012-2013 season.

The concert is presented as part of the symphony’s Family, School & Community Programs, which are partially supported with funding from the Seattle Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs, 4Culture, National Endowment for the Arts, PONCHO and the Bank of America Charitable Foundation.
