Orchestra Fire Works: Concordia Symphony OrchestraConcert
The Concordia Symphony Orchestra opens its 2015–16 season with an explosive concert featuring works by, Rossini, Massenet, Forsyth and Stravinsky.
Today’s concert features works from ballets and overtures. The concert begins with Rossini’s Overture to Semiramide, which proved much more appealing to audiences than the opera itself. The centerpiece of the program is Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite (1919 orchestration), the work that first brought him international attention (and continues to enchant audiences in Fantasia 2000). The orchestra also will perform the ballet music from Massenet’s Le Cid, and rounds out the concert with Edmonton’s very own and one of Canada’s most renowned composers, Malcom Forsyth with his Jubilee Overture.
Tickets are $15 for Adults and $12 for Students and Seniors, and are available at Tix on the Square (tixonthesquare.ca or 780.420.1757), Concordia Student Accounts, or at the door. Special Family Admission: $40 (available at the door only).
