Enriching the city’s classical music scene while nurturing up-and-coming musicians, the Concordia Symphony Orchestra (CSO) Chamber Nucleus proudly presents the first of two concerts in the 23-24 Chamber Music series, an eclectic selection of pieces that includes works by Steve Reich, Telemann, Mozart, Elgar, Villa-Lobos, and Piazzolla among other composers.

Playing alongside top-level musicians are five Concordia University of Edmonton (CUE) students.

Raymond Leung (violin) will star as one of the soloists of Steve Reich’s Duet for Two Violins and String Orchestra alongside Marie Krejar and the Nucleus strings. The piece is conducted by John Fedor. Double bass student, Dante Wright, as a CSO member, is part of the chamber ensemble.

Another program highlight is a piano trio formed by students Rron Delos Santos (piano), Raymond Leung (violin), and CSO’s cellist Katarina Kuhn in Franck Bridge’s Romance. Telemann’s trio sonata in G minor featuring student Jenna Kragt (piano/harpsichord) and Mozart’s Oboe Quartet in F Major, K. 370 starring student Stephanie Wong (oboe). Stephanie will collaborate with CSO’s concertmaster Frank Ho (violin), CSO principal viola Darrell Soetaert and CSO cellist Julia Darby.

Plan a night out with the CSO! Great performances await!

Event Details

The CSO Nucleus is fundraising for its first international tour to take place in June 2024. The goal of the Global Musician Tour is to introduce Canadian classical music to audiences abroad and to present a repertoire of less-known composers to champion global genre awareness. The touring group is made up of CSO members, CUE faculty and students, and guest musicians from the Edmonton community.
