An event that will make musical memories to last a lifetime. Edmonton Youth Orchestra players experience the thrill of sitting side by side with their idols, the musicians of the ESO, to perform Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade, led by ESO Music Director Emeritus William Eddins. Michael Massey, a cherished presence in Edmonton’s musical scene, conducts the premiere of his own composition, Symphonic Variations - Avenue House, inspired by fond memories from his childhood in London.
You are invited to attend a Prelude presentation before the Saturday, April 15th evening concert, starting at 6:45 PM in the Upper Circle Lobby (3rd Floor). This talk by musicologist D.T. Baker is a fantastic way to learn more about the pieces being performed in your concert.
