The Scarborough Philharmonic Orchestra’s 2014-2015 concert season has been an amazing mix of music – from our popular Halloween concert in November, to the warm holiday season concert for families, to music from Canada’s French, Italian and South Asian cultures, and a concert exclusively featuring Canadian composers.
“This has been a very successful season,” says Ronald Royer, SPO’s Music Director and Conductor. “Audiences have embraced music that is appealing, relevant and reflective of the cultures of our community.”
The SPO wraps up this successful season in May 2015 with the music of two of classical music’s greats – Ludwig van Beethoven and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
The program includes Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 5 in A Major, often referred to as “Turkish” and Beethoven’s emotionally-deep Symphony No. 3 in E-flat, Op. 55 (Eroica). Listeners will recognize strands of Beethoven’s symphony used in many films, including Psycho, Ocean’s Twelve, Something Wicked Comes This Way and Immortal Beloved.
