Orchestra Toronto presents...

Autumn Celebration

Happening in the George Weston Recital Hall

Pre-concert chat at 2:15 with Michael Newnham

Join Michael Newnham and the musicians of Orchestra Toronto as we open our 2018-19 season with an autumnal orchestral celebration.

Kevin Lau is an award-winning Canadian composer. His dramatic three-part orchestral portrait of Artemis, the ancient Greek goddess of the hunt and the moon recalls Holst's The Planets.

Anastasia Rizikoff is a celebrated young Canadian pianist. In Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, she and the orchestra will perform 24 variations on a tune that Niccolo Paganini originally wrote for the violin. 

A new season is like a whole new world. Dvořák's "New World" Symphony is one of the most popular symphonies of all time, and is the symphony that Neil Armstrong chose to take with him to the moon.
