Bells of Concordia, and multi-talented student Isabela Ramos singing, ringing, and conducting.
Sunday in Tegler
Concordia Symphony Orchestra presents Spanish Vistas (3 pm)
The CSO opens its season with dramatic flair and three of the most beloved pieces of the symphonic repertoire. The iconic Suite No. 1 from Bizet’s opera Carmen introduces the simmering passion of the Iberian peninsula, while its natural beauty is captured in Rodrigo’s poignant Concierto de Aranjuez, the most-performed guitar concerto and one of the most difficult, rendered by young guitar virtuoso Trevor Cooper. Beethoven’s rousing Symphony No. 7 rounds out the afternoon of favourites. Pre-concert chat at 2:30 by Danielle Lisboa. Comp tickets (1 per faculty or staff) available from Jennifer at A306.
