Saturday, January 26th, 2019 (7:30pm)

* Pre-concert chat with Maestro Clyde Mitchell at 6:30pm

Dr. John Friesen, a Vancouver-born musician, quite simply, is a brilliant cellist. He grew up in our area, and often returns home from his professorship at Western Washington University to teach and perform. In addition to his playing the brilliant Cello Concerto #1 by Haydn, Sinfonia will present music by Haydn’s star pupil Mozart, and a sparkling, rhythmically vibrant, and melodious new Symphony composed for us by one of Canada’s busiest and best composers, Vancouver’s own Christopher Tyler Nickel.

The Emperor: Ian Parker plays Beethoven
Saturday, April 6th, 2019 (7:30pm)

* Pre-concert chat with Maestro Clyde Mitchell at 6:30pm

We opened the season with Beethoven’s mighty 5th Symphony, and we will close with the brilliant Ian Parker as soloist in Beethoven’s magnificent Emperor Concerto, his 5th and final concerto for Piano. Our audiences clamour for music by the great composers of the past, so we offer a short and sweet early Mozart work – his 5th Symphony, and the virtuoso Flute and Piccolo soloist Sarah Jackson playing a traditional concerto by Vivaldi and (believe it or not!) a Baroque Concerto by Michael Conway Baker.
