The Performance

We end the season on a triumphant note with guest conductor and former HPO Music Director, James Sommerville! Known for his poetic interpretations, Nikki Chooi takes centre stage for Mozart’s enchanting Violin Concerto No. 4. Iman Habibi’s Jeder Baum spricht offers a rhapsodic reflection on climate change in Beethoven’s signature style. The heroic journey of Beethoven’s immortal Symphony No. 5 finishes the season with soaring dramatic melodies and triumph over life’s challenges.

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!
