KUNÉ – Canada’s Global Orchestra (8:00pm Jan 10 & 11, 2020; 2:00pm Jan 12, 2020)
Julian Pellicano, Associate Conductor
KUNÉ – Canada’s Global Orchestra, is in a class by itself! Conceived and developed by the Royal Conservatory of Music, KUNÉ explores and celebrates Canada’s cultural diversity. The 13 virtuoso musicians of KUNÉ hail from all corners of the world, playing instruments as diverse as they are to form a uniquely Canadian but global sound.
Beethoven’s Triple (8:00pm Jan 17 & 18, 2020)
Daniel Raiskin, Music Director; Gwen Hoebig, violin; Yuri Hooker, cello; David Moroz, piano
We kick off Beethoven’s 250th birthday with his Triple Concerto. Beethoven forged new paths in the heroic, liberating Eroica Symphony, taking the realm of the symphony to new heights never before achieved. The grand Triple Concerto is an entertaining lookback to the classical period – a trio inside a concerto!
Scandinavian Greats (8:00pm Feb 7 & 8, 2020)
Jessica Cottis, conductor; Micah Heilbrunn, clarinet; Daniel Scholz, viola
Edvard Grieg’s Peer Gynt music has permeated pop culture to an incredible degree, but you’ll also want to discover Grieg’s tune-filled Holberg Suite – a valentine to 18th century dance. Sibelius’s light, fresh Third Symphony lets the sun shine on the Finnish landscape. Warmth and 19th century nostalgia pervade Max Bruch’s lovely Double Concerto, further inspired by our splendid WSO soloists.
Vouchers will be presented to participants upon arrival and registration at Centennial Concert Hall on Sunday, Dec 15th.
