Concordia Symphony Orchestra kicks off the 2018–19 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. This second piece, the most-performed guitar concerto and one of the most difficult, is rendered by young guitar virtuoso Trevor Cooper, who has studied classical guitar with leading teachers in Spain, Austria, Toronto, and Edmonton, and is currently finishing a Master’s degree at the Mozarteum Salzburg in Austria with Eliot Fisk.

Beethoven’s rousing Symphony No. 7 in A Major rounds out the afternoon of favourites. The concert is preceded by a pre-concert chat at 2:30 by Dr. Danielle Lisboa.
Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for students and seniors, and are available from Tix on the Square (780.420.1757), Concordia’s Bookstore, or at the door. Special Family Admission: $40 (available at the door only).
