WEBSITE UPDATE COMPLETE! ONLINE TICKET SALES NOW AVAILABLE! OUR FIRST CONCERT IS FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2019!

Thursday, September 5, 2019 — The Scarborough Philharmonic Orchestra website is now completely updated. Our new 2019/2020 40th Anniversary Season Brochure is available through all links. Full concert details are updated.

Thanks to our webmaster for getting this update done in record time (14 hours vs 48 hours).

Our first concert of the season, “A Chamber Music Potpourri”, will be FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2019 – 8 pm at St. Paul’s L’Amoreaux Anglican Church (3333 Finch Avenue E.) and will feature Joyce Lai (violin), Ronald Royer (cello), Kaye Royer (clarinet), New Generation Artist Vanessa Yu (piano), and a special guest (viola).

Music from Clara Schumann, Robert Schumann, Frederic Chopin, Franz Schuber, Franz Joseph Haydn, Ralph Vaughan Williams, and great Canadian composer Elizabeth Raum (also our 2019/2020 Composer-in-Residence) are all on the program.

Our second concert, “Mozart and Mendelssohn”, will feature the full orchestra under the direction of Ronald Royer. We will also welcome guest soloist Joyce Lai (violin) and internationally-renowned soloist Máté Szűcs (viola) to The Salvation Army Scarborough Citadel (2021 Lawrence Avenue E.) on SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2019 – 8 pm.

Jacelyn Holmes is confirmed to join us for our annual holiday concert, “WINTER DREAMS: A FAMILY HOLIDAY CONCERT” on SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2019 – 7 pm at The Salvation Army Scarborough Citadel.  We also hope you can come early for the special Pre-Concert performances of our guest choirs with piano, starting at 6:30 pm.  It’s an earlier start time than usual, but ensures that our younger musicians can perform, enjoy, and still be home in time for bed. Family-friendly entertainment for everyone!

The SPO is proud to offer programs and opportunities that benefit and support Canadian composers, artists and talent. Show your support, too!
