Yes, gentle readers, the time has come again to make plans to attend the Lakeshore Chamber Orchestra spring concert! Every spring we present a lively and soul-uplifting concert to celebrate the arrival of the season, and for your entertainment we have prepared a challenging programme.
So circle Saturday the 28th of March on your calendars! At 19h30 in the Valois United Church in Pointe-Claire (70 Belmont Ave., between King and Queen), the Lakeshore Chamber Orchestra will present their spring concert, featuring the following works:
Vivaldi – Concerto Op 3 No 7 for four violins and strings
Beethoven – Symphony No 1
Mendelssohn – Hebrides Overture – op 26 (Fingalâ€™s Cave)
Bizet – Lâ€™Arlesienne Suite No 1
Rimsky Korsakov – Scheherezade Movement #3, ‘The Young Prince and Princess’
Admission is $10 per person; admission is free for those under 18 years of age. The concerts usually last approximately two hours, including the refreshment break. There are driving directions and public transport info on the church website, linked above. I usually encourage people who are vehicle-less to find someone who has a car and share the cost of the driverâ€™s admission to the concert among them. Itâ€™s more fun to enjoy the evening in the company of others, after all.
We’re working with a series of guest conductors this season, and our guest leader for this upcoming evening is Kari Keiser, an energetic woman whose work we have been enjoying very much. She’s drawing passionate and nuanced music out of us, and we’re really looking forward to presenting it to you.
