JOIN THE WINDS OF THE SPO AT ST. DUNSTAN OF CANTERBURY FEBRUARY 9, 2019!
This concert will also feature new Canadian compositions from participants of the 2018 SPO New Generation Composers Workshop!
Saturday, February 9, 2019 — The Winds of The Scarborough Philharmonic Orchestra are looking forward to performing “Serenades and Stories” for you at St. Dunstan of Canterbury Anglican Church, located at 56 Lawson Road in east Scarborough. This is a new performance venue for the SPO and was selected because of the incredible, intimate acoustics of the venue. It also has free parking on site or directly across the street. The nature of the sound will give you the sense you are right there performing. It’s fantastic!
The ensemble will be performing music by the great Romantic-era composer Antonin Dvorak including the Wind Serenade in D minor, Op. 44, and the Slavonic Dance No. 2, Op. 46.
This concert will also feature music from six Canadian composers. Selections from Elizabeth Raum’s International Suite will be performed. Five new compositions will receive world premieres: Charles Demuynck’s Upbeat with its strong jazz influence, and Shreya Jha’s turbo-charged Adversity. The program also includes three works created through the SPO 2018 New Generation Composer Workshop and reading session. Selections include Hokkaido Sunrise by Brendan Bevan, Desert Stones by Ian Chan, and Eons Fallen by William Zhang.
