THE FOURTH IS WITH THE SPO SATURDAY, MAY 4th!
Saturday, May 4, 2019 — The Scarborough Philharmonic Orchestra is at the centre of the galaxy as we take to the stage at The Salvation Army Scarborough Citadel (2021 Lawrence Ave. E.) at 8 pm to present, “CLASSIC FILM MUSIC & NEW ANIMATED SHORTS”.
Under the direction of SPO Music Director and Conductor, Ronald Royer, the SPO will present a very different kind of concert. In addition to performing great film music we’ve come to know and love, the orchestra will also perform new music specifically composed to accompany new animated short films created by top students of the Sheridan College Animation Program. If you’ve ever wondered how they do it in Hollywood, you’ll see it live in front of your eyes.
On the classic film music part of the program are selections from John Williams (Star Wars Suite), Henry Mancini (Theme from “The Pink Panther”), Sergei Prokofiev (Lieutenant Kije Suite, Op. 60), and Erich Wolfganag Korngold (Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 35).
This concert will also feature performance by talented guest violinist, AARON SCHWEBEL!
On the new music part of the program, we are thrilled to present works by Canadian composers (and members of the SPO family) Ronald Royer, Samuel Bisson, Bruno Degazio, and Sergei Kofman. Mr. Degazio is our SPO Composer-in-Residence and also the Professor at Sheridan who teaches the animation students. Mr. Kofman is a participant of our SPO New Generation Composers Workshop program.
