The Performance

Schubert’s melodies create an uplifting tone for this concert featuring Guest Soprano Alexandra Smither performing the composer’s beloved Ave Maria. Smither joins the orchestra again for contemporary Canadian composer Zosha di Castri’s Dear Life, based on the short story of the same name by Alice Munro. The Overture to Mozart’s opera Don Giovanni brings drama while Schubert’s Symphony No. 9 presents heavenly melodies for an inspiring conclusion.

Join us for the Inside the Music: Pre-Concert talk with Composer-in-Residence Abigail Richardson-Schulte beginning at 6:30pm in the Great Hall!
