ONLINE TICKET SALES NOW AVAILABLE FOR OUR NEXT CONCERT: SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2019!
Tuesday, October 15, 2019 — Our new 2019/2020 40th Anniversary Season Brochure is available through all links. Full concert details are updated.
Our second concert of the season, “MOZART AND MENDELSSOHN”, will be SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2019 – 8 pm at The Salvation Army Scarborough Citadel (2021 Lawrence Avenue E., at Warden) and will feature the full orchestra and special guest soloist Joyce Lai (violin), and internationally-renowned soloist Máté Szűcs (viola). Joyce is artistic director and concertmaster of the Canadian Sinfonietta, and our SPO 2019/2020 Artist-in-Residence, while Máté Szűcs joins us from overseas. Máté was principal violist with the Berlin Philharmonic, having left that position fairly recently to become an internationally touring concert artist. The SPO is beyond thrilled to have Mr. Szűcs joining us for this unique evening.
Music to be performed includes Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante for Violin, Viola, and Orchestra (K.364), Ronald Royer’s Sarabande, for Viola and Chamber Orchestra, and Felix Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 4 in A major (Italian), Op. 90.
Our third concert, “Winter Dreams: A Family Holiday Concert”, will feature the full orchestra under the direction of Ronald Royer. We will also welcome special guest choirs, including the SPO Women’s Choir (under the direction of Mr. Eugene He), Sistema Toronto Youth Choir (under the direction of Delicia Raveenthrarajan), St. Paul’s L’Amoreaux Youth & Adult Choirs (under the direction of David McCartney), and members of the Church of the Holy Trinity Guildwood Choir (under the direction of Robert Graham). The concert really begins at 6:30 pm with performances by the choirs, with the full orchestra on stage at 7 pm for the main concert. The early start time is family friendly, so bring your whole family. At The Salvation Army Scarborough Citadel (2021 Lawrence Avenue E.) on SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2019 – 6:30 pm Choirs / 7 pm Main concert.
