The Organ Concert

Conducted by Kerem Hasan
April 4 - 6 7:30 PM

You are invited to attend a Prelude presentation before the Friday, April 5th and Saturday, April 6th evening concerts, starting at 6:45 PM in the Upper Circle Lobby (3rd Floor). This talk by Natalie Boisvert is a fantastic way to learn more about the pieces being performed in your concert.

The famous Davis Concert Organ will be featured front-and-center in Samy Moussa’s elegant tone poem and Guilmant’s lively symphony. Jean-Willy Kunz, Organist-in-Residence with the Montreal Symphony Orchestra, joins young British conductor Kerem Hasan in a concert that’s full of musical variety. Catchy dance rhythms and unstoppable energy are what has made Beethoven’s seventh symphony popular since its first performance in 1813. Brimming with enthusiasm and humour, it remains a delight for orchestra musicians and audiences alike.
