May 28. Grammy-winning conductor Fabio Luisi debuted with the Metropolitan Opera in 2005 and took over as its principal conductor in 2011 when the Met's music director, James Levine, stepped aside due to health issues. For this afternoon at Bard College's Fisher Center, Luisi will lead the Bard-affiliated Orchestra Now and guest violinist David Chan through Beethoven's Violin Concerto in D Major and Brahms's Symphony No. 4. Fun fact: Outside of his musical career, the maestro pursues perfumery and has his own fragrance line. Take that, Kanye. (The Bard College Community Orchestra delivers Dvorak May 15; the Red Hook High School Concert Choir and Symphonic Band play May 19.) 1pm. $25, $35 (free for Bard Students). Annandale-on-Hudson. (845) 758-7900.
