THE FIRST CONCERT OF OUR 39th SEASON WAS FANTASTIC!
Congratulations to Maestro Royer and our Orchestra!
Saturday, October 27, 2018 — The Scarborough Philharmonic Orchestra put on a fabulous concert this evening. The musicians performed beautifully. We were so thrilled to see our loyal fans and supporters braving the first snows of the season, and to meet new friends who are hearing about the quality of our Orchestra.
The audience was thrilled to provide written feedback to composer Alexander Rapoport on his piece, A Symphonic Teaser: Do You Want Me to Finish This Symphony?, the first musical selection on the program. If you were to guess based on the enthusiastic applause, you would think the answer was a resounding, “yes”. The Beethoven Symphony No. 8 was simply, excellent. The big highlight of the evening saw Kara Huber joining the orchestra on piano to perform Brahms towering Symphony No. 2. It is a challenging and demanding piece for pianist and for the ensemble. Ms. Huber brought the magic.
We hope you had a great time enjoying great music from the SPO! Downtown Sound. Uptown.
Our next concert is a great way to start the Holidays right – Saturday, December 1 @ 7 pm!
In just a few days, the SPO will present “The Nutcracker & More!”; a family Holiday concert. We look forward to performances by our SPO Women’s Choir under the direction of Yiping Chao, Sistema Toronto Youth Choir under the orchestral direction of Andrés Tucci Clark and Choir Director Claudia Liedke, and St. Paul’s L’Amoreaux Youth and Adult Choirs under the direction of David McCartney.
We also have a special guest joining us, Jacelyn Holmes. Jacelyn is one of Canada’s hottest emerging singer/songwriters with a debut album coming out very soon. Jacelyn will perform two new songs created with her co-writer, Tony Rabalao, and our own Ronald Royer. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to hear the future.
Join us early at 6:15 pm for a special pre-concert sing-along. Tickets available online or at the door.
If you haven’t heard the extremely high-quality performance the SPO presents, and you appreciate great classical music, do your body and soul a favour and come out to see us.
The performance space is intimate with wonderful acoustics, comfortable seating and convenient, free parking.
